The second shoe at Pikes Peak Area Council of Governments has dropped.

Craig Casper, who was paid $111,413 a year as Regional Transportation Director at Pikes Peak Area Council of Governments, put in his last day on Feb. 9.

He and PPACG executive director Rob MacDonald had been placed on paid administrative leave on Dec. 22.

On Jan. 11, the PPACG board, comprised of officials from cities, towns and El Paso County, terminated MacDonald's employment arrangement effective Feb. 10.

Rick Sonnenburg, who oversees PPRTA, has been acting director since Dec. 22. The PPACG board is conducting a search for a permanent director. The job's pay range is $130,000 to $196,200.

Another person placed on leave on Dec. 22, PPACG finance manager Bev Majewski, returned from leave on Jan. 19. She's paid $95,305 a year.
