CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley has no plan to fire the city manager amid three lawsuits and heightened tensions between city hall and the Fraternal Order of Police. 

Cranley on Thursday confirmed Harry Black's job security in an exclusive statement to FOX19 Now. 

Last month, Black was named in three separate lawsuits alleging abuse of power. The suits were filed by a Cincinnati police captain, Cincinnati fire district chief and a former Public Works Operations Superintendent.

The conflict between Black and FOP Leader Dan Hils reignited Tuesday when Hils released a taped phone call in which, he claims, Black tried to intimidate and harass him.

The pair had already disagreed over raises for police officers in a public battle last year.
