- Rob McDonald was placed on leave.
Back in January, the Pikes Peak Area Council of Governments ended its contract with Executive Director Rob MacDonald, effective Feb. 10, due to several personnel issues.
PPACG Board Chair Andy Pico, a Colorado Springs City Councilor, says the board hired The Mercer Group, Inc. to help them find a replacement. Under a $25,000 contract, Mercer is due to provide a narrowed list of applicants in September, after which finalists will be named in late October and interviews held in November. "We're making sure we do it right," Pico says.
Rick Sonnenberg is acting director pending a hire.
