Ellen McLean plans to retire as chief executive officer of the Pittsburgh-based Port Authority of Allegheny County on June 1, a position she has held since February 2014.
McLean’s employment contracted ended on Feb.1, but she agreed to stay on while the authority completes work on its fiscal year 2018 budget.
She will receive a year of salary and health benefits as part of her severance, authority officials said.
Before being named CEO, McLean has served as the agency’s chief financial officer since 2010 and interim CEO since February 2013.
The Port Authority operates a 26.2-mile light-rail system in Pittsburgh.
