PUEBLO - Pueblo County Commissioners have unanimously voted to fire County Transportation Director, Greg Severance. Severance, who works for both the county and the city, has been on paid administrative leave for the past three weeks. Emails between Severance and members of Pueblo City Council were uncovered, including some with harsh words on how to handle blow-back from garbage companies who petitioned to overturn the council's vote to hire a trash consultant.
The controversy led to the resignation of Pueblo Councilman Chris Kaufman. Two others are facing a recall.
Severance has apologized for his comments.
