LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The Bluegrass Area Development District's board has placed the agency's executive director on administrative leave.
The Lexington Herald-Leader reported the board took the action against Lenny Stoltz II on Monday night after a three-hour meeting behind closed doors.
The board appointed assistant Executive Director David Duttlinger as interim leader of the Lexington-based agency that helps coordinate planning and federal spending in a 17-county area.
Duttlinger declined to comment Tuesday on the reason Stoltz was placed on administrative leave.
Stoltz did not return a message from the newspaper seeking comment.
