Thu. noon: Fire district hires fiscal officer

NEWTON FALLS – The joint fire district has voted to accept the unexpected resignation of their clerk and fiscal officer, Richard Hoover, and hire Joe Sosnowski as interim fiscal officer.

Sosnowski was hired originally as a consultant to rectify the district’s financial books after their previous fiscal officer, Ella Johnson, left them in a shambles.

He will be paid at the current rate for a fiscal officer. Board member Greg Dubos said they are gathering information about how to proceed with hiring a new fiscal officer.

Hoover held the position for six months.
