The Metra Board is stepping up its search for a replacement to the late Phil Pagano.
Pagano was Metra's CEO until he took his life May 7 in the midst of a financial scandal.
The Metra Board is also releasing new information about the extent of that misuse of funds. The latest revelation involves the pension benefits of some top executives and Pagano's decision to consider vacation buyouts that boosted their retirement pay.
The details will be discussed Thursday at a meeting of the RTA.
