PITTSBURGH (AP) - The newly appointed executive director of the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority has quit after his resume was questioned.

The authority’s board voted Wednesday to hire K. Charles Griffin for $190,000 annually. But media reports soon after questioned Griffin’s resume, which said he had resigned after 16 months as general manager of the Beaufort-Jasper Water & Sewer Authority in South Carolina.

Minutes from a meeting of the South Carolina agency’s board show Griffin was terminated. He’s since said it was a forced resignation.

Mayor Bill Peduto has called for the PWSA board to account for its vetting and hiring practices.

Griffin told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Tuesday that he withdrew his application saying, “I’d like to leave it at that” and that his “resume was complete.”
