Weybridge corrects clerk/treasurer appointment
WEYBRIDGE — The Weybridge selectboard last week held an emergency meeting at which they appointed Brenda Jaring as interim Weybridge town clerk and treasurer. Jaring, in turn, will appoint New Haven resident Beverly Landon as assistant town clerk and assistant treasurer.
The board had previously named Landon to the interim jobs, but later discovered through the Vermont Secretary of State’s Office that they couldn’t take that action because Landon is not a Weybridge resident.
Jaring, who had been the assistant town clerk and treasurer, had previously said she would be unable to perform the full duties of the clerk and treasurer because of other professional commitments. Those posts were previously held by Karen Brisson, who resigned from her post earlier this month after revealing to town officials that she had embezzled funds from the municipal coffers during the past few years. The extent of that theft is now being investigated by an independent auditor.
Landon as assistant town clerk will be maintaining regular town office hours, which are 9 a.m. to 2 .m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
