BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - The leader of a south-central Kentucky workforce development district has announced his retirement.

News outlets report 69-year-old Barren River Area Development District Executive Director Rodney Kirtley sent a letter to the district’s board members Wednesday announcing his retirement while citing a disagreement over a recent payment to the state.

The board voted Tuesday to pay back nearly $83,000 to the Kentucky Department of Aging and Independent Living. BRADD had used the money to pay salary bonuses from 2009 through 2014. Kirtley had referred to the money as salary adjustments.

Kirtley, who has held his position for nine years, says he is leaving Friday on good terms with the board.

BRADD Executive Council Chairman Greg Wilson says the board will meet Friday in the hopes of naming an interim executive director.
