SPENCER, N.C. (AP) — The executive director for the North Carolina Transportation Museum in Spencer has resigned.
The Salisbury Post reported reported that Sam Wegner resigned after nine months on the job.
Keith Hardison with the North Carolina Division of State Historic Sites says Wegner left to pursue other opportunities.
Wegner says he does not have another job. He would not say if he was asked to resign.
The state-owned museum is charging admission for the first time, hosting more events and renting out parts of the facility.
The staff has been cut in half to nine workers in the past two years. Its state allocation has been reduced from $1 million annually to $300,000.
Former chief of services Larry Neal is the new interim executive director.
