New Warren treasurer to be named soon


Warren could have a new town treasurer by mid-July.

Warren Town Manager Thomas Gordon said he received 18 applications for the job, which opened when current treasurer and tax collector Ross Latham decided to step down last month. Mr. Gordon said the Warren Town Council will review his recommendation and likely ratify it on Tuesday, July 9.

"I would expect" that the winning candidate will start on Monday, July 15.

Mr. Latham started in July 2012 and prior to coming to Warren, served as the accounts payable and receivable clerk for the Town of Portsmouth.

Though he was happy for the chance in Warren, Mr. Latham said last month that his role in Warren “isn’t the right position” for him. He agreed to stay on until a replacement is found.

The position paid $62,424 this year and under the new town budget passed in lat May, will pay $63,829 during the 2013-14 fiscal year.
