Port of Oswego director resigns

Dec 7, 2017

The director of the Port of Oswego Authority resigned this week. The move comes as New York state's inspector general is investigating the port.

With no explanation given, the Port of Oswego's board of directors said in a statement Tuesday that it had accepted the resignation of Zelko Kirincich. Kirincich, who has served as executive director at the port since 2014, is leaving his position as the New York State Inspector General continues an investigation into the port.

In September, officials with the IG's office seized Kirincich's cellphone and computer during a search of the port. A spokesperson for the IG's office offered no comment on the status of the investigation or Kirincich's resignation.

Multiple interview requests to port board of directors chairman Terrence Hammill went unanswered. Another board member reached by phone had no comment.
