Gregorio Ramon, chief executive officer of the Little Rock Water Reclamation Authority, will step down after serving in the role for close to nine years, commission members were told during a meeting on Wednesday.
Chair Schawnee Hightower made the announcement about Ramon's coming retirement after an executive session of the commission.
Prior to his resignation date, a subcommittee of individuals including Ramon is expected to review candidates to succeed him. The final decision on a new chief executive will be up to the seven-member commission.
Ramon, 62, has worked for the wastewater utility since October 2014.
