Last month MARTA executive Dwight Ferrell was removed as manager of the Atlanta streetcar project. Another top consultant reportedly resigned as a result.
While city and transit officials aren’t saying why, some community leaders are worried the $70 million project is being mismanaged.
Atlanta City Councilman Michael Julian Bond is one of them. He says the abrupt leadership change is troubling.
“That project is very, very important to downtown, and I would suspect if this person was removed, it’s probably because the project just hasn’t taken off," said Bond.
