Casper City Manager V.H. McDonald has announced he will retire from the position on June 1. 

McDonald’s decision to retire follows the Casper City Council's request on Tuesday for an investigation into leadership at the Casper Police Department and complaints that city management neglected to address problems in that department.  

A press release from the City of Casper says McDonald was hired in November of 2015. 

While city council begins the process of finding and hiring a replacement, Assistant City Manager Liz Becher will act as interim during the transition. 

Additionally, Casper City Councilman Todd Murphy announced his resignation earlier this week, saying the reason was personal and related to health.
