The president of the Omaha utility that provides water and natural gas service throughout the area has resigned to take a job with a private energy firm.
Metropolitan Utilities District President Doug Clark resigned Wednesday, and his last day will be September 13th.
Clark, who has been with MUD 11 years, is going to work for Tenaska. That Omaha-based company builds and runs power plants independently.
MUD Senior Vice President Mark Doyle will serve as the utility's interim president, but he won't be a candidate for the permanent job.
MUD serves more than 200,000 natural gas and water customers in the Omaha metropolitan area.
