LEONARDTOWN, MD– The Commissioners approved a request by the Department of Public Works & Transportation to reclassify and reorganize the Airport Operations Division into the Transportation Division. The reclassification consolidates a St. Mary’s County Transit System position vacated by retirement with an existing Airport Management staff position. Allison Swint will assume the newly created Deputy Director – Transportation role.
The new deputy director position willincorporate all the current duties of the Airport Manager and the Transportation Manager to create the synergy and focus on both public-private partnerships and contractor delivered services necessary to move the Transportation Division to the next level.
The Commissioners approval of the reorganization allows for a projected $86,566 FY21 savings in county expenses.
