PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The head of Philadelphia’s agency that oversees on-street parking enforcement, taxis and towing has resigned amid accusations that he sexually harassed two co-workers.

The Philadelphia Parking Authority says Vincent Fenerty Jr. submitted his resignation on Wednesday. The agency has accepted his resignation.

Board chairman Joseph Ashdale suspended Fenerty on Tuesday after Ashdale said he learned of an earlier sexual harassment case against Fenerty in addition to one from 2014.

Ashdale says the first sexual harassment complaint hadn’t been considered when the agency initially allowed Fenerty to keep his job. He says the case wasn’t in Fenerty’s human resources file.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports Fenerty stands to collect about $155,000 a year in pension payments.



Fenerty says he decided to resign and has been advised to say nothing more.
