A long-time Mansfield city employee has been fired.

Kay Hughes worked in the 911 dispatching center for 28 years, reaching the position of Operations Supervisor, before being let go this week.

Service-Safety Director Lori Cope would not disclose the reason, other than to imply it was due to deteriorating job performance. 

Hughes is 17 months short of being eligible for public employee retirement benefits.

Cope is recommending her to other dispatching centers. 

Mansfield has 11 dispatchers after a new one was recently hired, and two more are being trained, to at least get closer to the full staff of 17.

The city is trying to hire a new dispatching operations supervisor from within, but is also advertising the position to the public.
