After months of turmoil, the Director of the Oregon Liquor Control Commission will soon step down from his position.

Director Steve Pharo announced Tuesday that he will retire on November 16 after working for the OLCC for 18 years.

In recent months the agency has clashed with Governor John Kitzhaber over how much control it should have over the state alcohol trade.

The OLCC buys and sells liquor and also manages enforcement of state alcohol laws.
