San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency executive director Nathaniel Ford will sit down with his board of directors in a closed-session meeting on Tuesday to discuss his future with the department.
Ford was expected to be offered a position by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority on Wednesday, but the D.C.-based board opted to postpone the decision. That delay — and Ford’s overt pining for the D.C. job — has put the SFMTA in an awkward position about what to do with its executive director.
SFMTA board chair Tom Nolan said the agency could buy out Ford’s contract, at the cost of about $390,000. Nolan said retaining Ford is also an option.
