The Middleburg Town Council last week voted unanimously to appoint John O’Neil, the Town of Woodstock’s former finance director, as the town’s interim treasurer.
That appointment follows the July 24 resignation of Tina Staples, the former office manager. Staples, who left to become the Town of Hamilton’s treasurer, was filling in for Ashley Bott, who resigned on May 30.
The council also voted to appoint Town Administrator Danny Davis as deputy town treasurer.
In addition to assuming “all the rights and responsibilities of the town treasurer,” Davis is working to find candidates to fill the treasurer role on a permanent basis. Once a full-time hire is made for that position, staff will begin the search for a new office manager.
