NYC environmental protection commissioner resigns
NEW YORK - Mayor Michael Bloomberg says New York City's environmental protection commissioner is leaving city government for a new job.
Bloomberg says in a statement that Emily Lloyd resigned Wednesday and will become chief operating officer of Trinity Church's real estate operation.
The mayor is praising Lloyd's work on the city's water infrastructure. He notes that tunneling was completed for a new city water tunnel during her tenure.
Before becoming commissioner of the Department of Environmental Protection in 2005, Lloyd headed the Sanitation Department under mayors David Dinkins and Rudy Giuliani.
