The Dispatch wrote COTA’s president to retire in 2010

Tuesday, May 27, 2008

William Lhota plans to step down as president and chief executive officer of the Central Ohio Transit Authority in two years. The COTA board of trustees is expected to approve a new contract Wednesday for Lhota that will expire June 30, 2010. It’s expected his base salary will remain at $136,590.

Lhota, 68, has led COTA since 2004. On Lhota’s watch, the authority’s finances have improved. Its budget has operated in the black the past three years, and voters approved a 10-year, 0.25 percent tax levy in 2006.
