EMTA's executive director Mike Tann has handed in his resignation.

Tann will be taking another position elsewhere, Erie Mayor Joe Schember told Erie News Now.

The Board of Directors will hold a special meeting at 5 p.m. Monday to accept his resignation.

The board will be tasked with finding his replacement.

EMTA is in the midst of a multi-million dollar expansion in downtown Erie.

Mayor Schember said he is confident the board will choose a replacement who will continue to move the transit authority forward.

"The board is going to go through a national search to try to find a good replacement," said Schember. "We want to get a good person in there, and hopefully we can can replace him with a good person and keep moving forward."

Tann gave the board his 90-day resignation, so the board has three months to find a replacement.
