The chief financial officer of the Southeastern Public Service Authority has resigned, leaving its executive director, Rowland Taylor, the only executive left at the beleaguered authority.

Walter R. Hunter turned in his two weeks’ notice on Friday, said SPSA spokesman Tom Kreidel. The move was not expected, he said.

Kreidel was unsure on Wednesday afternoon if the position would be filled. Hunter was making $117,977 per year.

“It’s still up in the air,” Kreidel said. “Obviously, his functions will be handled until that decision is made.”

Kreidel said there still is a full accounting section left at the authority.

“We’re in a state of some changes going on here,” he said. “We’ll do what needs to be done to get the job done.”

Kreidel said Taylor was unavailable for comment on Hunter’s resignation. Hunter will continue as chief financial officer until the end of the month.
