New Financial Team Hired to Manage North Castle’s Finances

A special meeting of the North Castle Town Board was held on August 28, 2012. The Town Board approved hiring both a town administrator and a town comptroller. Joan Goldberg, who has been hired as town administrator, and Faith S. Berland, who has been hired as town comptroller, will begin working together on the Town’s Budget for 2013 in the mid-September.

“Knowing the job as Supervisor, it is my opinion that a financial consultation is not the job of a town administrator. The town budget director should be responsible as the chief operating officer working with the town administrator, ” Supervisor Howard Arden said on an earlier date.

The hiring of a town administrator is a special day in the history of North Castle as it marks a transition to a more professional government. Supervisor Arden commented that we will become a much more consistent, fair and professionally managed town
