NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Long-time Metro Parks director Roy Wilson announced Tuesday plans to resign effective at the end of the year.
In an e-mail to 8 or 9 park employees, Wilson thanked his co-workers for their support during Monday night's Metro Council meeting. He asked for their forgiveness for any disappointment he might have caused.
Wilson's come under intense scrutiny in the last couple weeks, in the wake of a $1.7 million budget shortfall.
He was unable to be reached for comment Tuesday afternoon.
