JOPLIN (AP) - A Jasper County judge says he will order the city of Joplin to release a report involving the firing of the former city manager.

The Joplin Globe and its parent company, Community Newspaper Holdings Inc., had asked for the release of an investigator's report that led to the Feb. 4 firing of Mark Rohr as city manager.

The Globe reported the investigation was intended to focus on two council members but also focused on Rohr.

Previously, the city released part of the report about the two councilmen but withheld sections concerning Rohr. It has also refused to allow access to some exhibits of the report and testimony from the investigation. The city contends that the report on Rohr is a personnel record that is closed to the public.
