Staff North Stormont has begun the process of finding a new director of finance.
The township posted an advertisement July 15 for the position, explaining that the salary would be between $75,870 and $102,647.
The deadline for applications was July 31.
North Stormont has been without a director of finance since it parted ways with Catherine Borelly on July 5 in what Mayor Jim Wert referred to during the July 9 regular council meeting as “a change in direction.”
An in-house email sent by CAO Craig Calder to council and township staff regarding the move – a copy of which was somehow leaked to members of the local community – stated that the decision to relieve Ms. Borelly of her duties was “in no way a reflection on Catherine’s professionalism.”
Ms. Borelly had been in North Stormont’s employ since February 2016.
In early July, the township also posted an ad for a senior financial analyst.
The job description for that position states that the successful applicant will “perform a variety of high level accounting, budgeting, cash management and financial reporting functions,” and also provide advice, guidance, and support to the director of finance and other township staff members “on business and financial matters, as required.”
A pay scale for the senior financial analyst post was not disclosed.
