Taxicab Authority Head Resigns

The chair of the Nevada Taxicab Authority has resigned from the agency.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports Ileana Drobkin tendered her resignation earlier today.

Drobkin had been serving as the Authority's chair, but Gov. Brian Sandoval replaced her in that role earlier with Stan Olson, a former Metro lieutenant.

In her resignation letter, Drobkin said she had been thinking of leaving for a while.

She also criticized a recent audit of the Authority that recommended its dissolution, and said a more recent report commissioned by the Authority from Applied Analysis would vindicate the body.

Casey Morell is the coordinating producer of Nevada Public Radio's flagship broadcast State of Nevada and one of the station's midday newscast announcers. (He's also been interviewed by Jimmy Fallon, whatever that's worth.)
