ROCKINGHAM, Vt. — A Vermont town has welcomed a new finance director after a year without one.

Ronald Kavorsky says he is excited to work within the town of Rockingham and the village of Bellows Falls. The Brattleboro Reformer reports Karvosky previously used to be a selectman in Marlow, New Hampshire.

He is currently training on the town accounting system and says he sees a disturbing trend of running deficits in the village. Because of his training, he will not be drafting budgets for fiscal year 2019, which will fall to Municipal Manager Shane O’Keefe.

He’s familiar with village residents’ choice to vote down the 2018 proposed budget, resulting in the Board of Trustees cutting all four of the village’s full-time firefighters.
