Former Interim Burk City Manager Fired for Public Intoxication

Newschannel 6 is now learning the reason behind the sudden termination of Interim Burkburnett City Manager Don Ives. City officials tell us Commissioners voted unanimously on March 4th to fire Ives after he was arrested for Public Intoxication and Disorderly Conduct, a Class C misdemeanor. Burkburnett Police Chief Mike Tracy confirmed the arrest happened just after 10 PM last Thursday night in the 600 block of Sycamore Drive, in a residential area.

Mayor Carl Law told us the Board of Commissioners will meet Wednesday, March 9th to further discuss the City Manager position, including the consideration of three options for short and long term position fulfillment.

We will continue to follow the latest developments in this case and will bring you any updates if charges are filed against Ives. Also, we will be following the developments in the City Manager position after the City Commissioners' meeting this Wednesday.
