Metro General Manager John Catoe's employment contract has been extended for another three years.
Metro's board of directors voted 5 to 1 to extend general manager John Catoe's contract another 3 years. D.C. City administrator Neil Albert was the only board member to vote against the extension.
The Washington Post reports Catoe's salary will remain the same, but he'll now receive a $27,000 annual pension for the rest of his life.
The extension comes after a series of setbacks for Metro, including a June 22nd crash on the Red Line that killed 9 people.
