The chief executive of the Baltimore County Revenue Authority, the agency that operates public parking garages, golf courses and a sports center, said Thursday that he has resigned his post to take another position, but declined to provide further details.
“I’m leaving for something else,” said William L. “Lynnie” Cook II, who has led the agency since 2006. “I had another opportunity and I’m planning for that.”
Cook, who said he is still technically an employee of the authority through the end of April, said he met with the Revenue Authority board chairman, Donald Hutchinson, for about an hour last week and handed in a letter of resignation. He said he met with the staff on Monday and ceased to perform his official duties that day.
“I’m no longer an active employee as of Monday,” said Cook. “I met with the staff and went over details with them.”
Cook said he’s “right in the middle of some negotiations” about his new job and could not discuss details of it.
Cook came to the Revenue Authority from a position as director of the Baltimore Municipal Golf Corporation in the city, where he had worked for 20 years.
