KENNEWICK, Wash. (AP) - The general manager for the Tri-Cities area transit agency will not return after the agency’s board voted not to renew his contract.

The Tri-City Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1c45pQu ) that the Ben Franklin Transit board voted Dennis Solensky out after just one year.

Pasco Mayor Matt Watkins says there was no particular incident that led to the decision and that the board was looking for someone with different skills.

Solensky, who led the public transit system in Erie, Pa., for 12 years, was one of 86 applicants for the position after Tim Fredrickson, the manager for 18 years, resigned in December 2013. He was chosen April 2014.

Watkins says Gloria Boyce, Ben Franklin Transit’s finance manager, will serve as interim general manager while the board searches for a new manager.
