DALTON An interim fiscal officer was introduced at the village’s regular monthly meeting last week.
Cheryl Drew has been placed on administrative leave. She has served for 28 years as the fiscal officer, several years as the Board of Public Affairs clerk, and last year took over income tax administrator duties. She continues to be a paid employee, Mayor Dennis Finley confirmed later in the week. Finley said he could not provide more information at this time. Drew was contacted and also said she was unable to provide a comment at this time.
Village Hall will continue to be temporarily closed this week, Finley said. He said he anticipates Village Hall will reopen in March. In the meantime, residents can drop off payments in the payment slot. He also has been returning phone calls to residents. Residents can leave messages at the phone number or email posted on the door: firstname.lastname@example.org and 330-828-2221. Finley said Village Hall is no longer accepting cash payments.
