TROY - The Troy Area School Board voted Tuesday to deny the resignation request of business administrator Traci Gilliland.

When asked about the board's curious action, Gilliland said, "that means I have agreed to stay."

The action was taken at the board's meeting.

Last week, Gilliland had submitted her resignation, but the board at that time tabled action on the item. She said the board had asked her to reconsider.

On Tuesday, the board brought the item back off the table.

Previously, Gilliland cited "other opportunities" as her reason for resigning.

Gilliland was hired as business administrator in July 2012.

The vote to deny Gilliland's resignation was unanimous, with board member Deb Harer absent.

In other business, the board approved the lease agreement with Alparon Park for home football games.
