GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Greenburgh Town Comptroller Bart Talamani, has advised the Town Board that he will not be seeking reappointment when his term of office ends on Dec. 31.
During his tenure as Town Comptroller, Talamani helped the town receive the sought after AAA bond rating from both Standard & Poor's and Moody's bond rating agency, saving the taxpayers an estimate of $300,000 annually. The AAA rating is the highest a community can receive -- one that only 1 percent of localities around the nation have earned.
The town has also complied with the tax cap every year since it was approved by Albany, an achievement other communities around the state have failed to accomplish. Under Talamani's guidance, legislators encouraged the Town Board to look for additional cost savings measures and efficiencies.
With the new vacancy, Greenburgh is seeking a new Comptroller to fill Talamani's role. This position has the responsibility for the fiscal management of the Town of Greenburgh’s finances. Responsibility includes the prescription and application of procedures in the auditing of financial accounts, examination of claims and receipts and the authorization of claims. The Town Comptroller is under the general supervision of the Town Board and Supervisor, and subject to direct audit by the State Comptroller.
In addition to recieving a degree in accounting business or public adminitation, candidates should have a CPA designation, strong computer skills, working knowledge of municipal accounting systems and several years experience.
