The Alaska Marine Highway System's top official lost her job last week to cost-cutting.
That's according to Department of Transportation officials who say Executive Director Shirley Marquardt's last day was April 30.
Her annual salary, including benefits, cost $181,300.
"As with any position, terms of separation are confidential," said AMHS spokesperson Aurah Landau in a statement.
Marquardt is a former Unalaska mayor with private sector experience in marine freight and seafood.
