In the El Paso-Teller County 911 Authority's first public meeting since its CEO was put on leave, board members Wednesday passed a motion to start an effort to find an interim leader.

Colorado Springs Fire Battalion Chief Mike Dalton, chairman of the authority's board, will lead the effort, said El Paso County spokesman Dave Rose, a member of the nine-person board.

Rose confirmed that the authority's CEO James M. Anderson is still on administrative leave. He also said Anderson was at Wednesday's meeting.

John Norman, the authority's Chief Information Officer, is acting as the CEO at this time.

Anderson was put on leave June 10.
