Original story

This week the Denton Country Transportation Authority confirmed Jim Cline is no longer the president of the agency.

Cline had been working with DCTA since March 2010 when he assumed the duties as president.

DCTA would not respond to Community Impact Newspaper as to whether Cline departed on his own. However, one of the DCTA board members issued a statement.

“The Denton County Transportation Authority board of directors is currently having discussions about a potential change in leadership. At this time, the board has not taken any action on a potential change in leadership," said Dianne Costa, DCTA board secretary and city of Highland Village representative.
