MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. —  Brian Piascik was hired as the new general manager of Coast RTA — an agency that has had a bumpy past with its last two CEOs fired, a failed bus shelter program prompting the repayment to the state of $75,000 annually for the next five years, and a tumultuous relationship with Horry County Council, its largest local funder, MyrtleBeachonline.com reported.

Piascik recently worked in Dallas for URS Corp. serving as its transit group manager. He will make $140,000 annually and has quite a challenge ahead of him. He will work to get the agency off the ground in fiscal year 2016, which begins in less than two months, working with a budget he had no say in, according to the report.
