SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- After only two months on the job, Salt Lake County's Zoo, Arts and Parks program manager has abruptly resigned.

Elleney Soter has quit, citing a lack of resources and concern over management.

On Tuesday, Soter fired off several e-mails, claiming the ZAP program is in crisis and largely ignored.

Soter said in her e-mail that this was not the job she was hired for and would have never took it if she thought the program and the county's support for it would be abandoned.

Soter did not show up for work on Wednesday.

Her boss disputes the allegations. He says department staff provided adequate resources, and even brought in a part-time employee to assist Soter.
