ITA President Resigns
By Jeanine Cherry
Bowling Green – The President of the Intermodal Transportation Authority, Dan Cherry, announced his resignation in a news release.
Bowling Green Mayor, Sandy Jones, maintains Cherry is merely stepping aside. Jones says his continuing
role will be determined by the I.T.A.'s Personnel Committee.
Cherry currently makes $108-thousand dollars a year as I.T.A President.
His resignation comes two weeks following the general election. He maintains
there's no connection between his stepping down and the results from the polls or the amount of money spent in
the transpark development.
The I.T.A was formed in October 1998 by Warren Fiscal Court to plan,
develop, build and manage the Kentucky Trimodal Transpark, a 4000-acre
industrial park with access to rail, highway, and air transportation
