Bridgeport to Conduct National Search for New City Manager to Replace Haws

By Connect Clarksburg Staff | January 19, 2019
It’s only been a few days since the majority of Bridgeport City Council voted not to renew the contract of long-time City Manager Kim Haws. However, the process of finding what will be the third city manager in the municipality’s history is ready to begin.
Bridgeport Mayor Andy Lang said he plans on forming a committee of Council members to get the process started. He anticipated three members to be on the committee to kick things off - and he's asked two members already, but has yet to get confirmation.
“The committee’s purpose will be to look at the process that will be taken, or several processes, in selecting the next city manager,” said Lang. “I imagine it will be discussed at the next Council meeting where we can look at the recommendations. Certainly, it wouldn’t be fair to determine the process we’re going to take without having the input of the entire Council.”
Haws said the process will focus on fine points and major ones. He said it could include issues such as how applications will be taken, how the job will be advertised, deadlines of submission and wording on requirements sought for the ideal candidate.
“I’m confident will have a decision covering all of those items based on the input of the full Council,” said Lang.
