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.
