CLARKSBURG, Mass. — Officials are assuring residents that there's no cause for concern about the town's financial state and that the state's Department of Revenue will not be taking over its finances.
Assertions by the School Committee last week about problems in the treasurer's office had led to a flurry of comments on Facebook and calls to the town offices.
"We just wanted to state the facts of what's going on," said Town Treasurer Amy Cariddi. "We're not trying to hide anything. Just, we're working hard and a lot of those issues that were brought up in that last article have already been resolved."
Cariddi and Select Board Chair Danielle Luchi on Wednesday said they were surprised by the issues brought up at the School Committee in an iBerkshires article last week. Both acknowledged there had been serious problems and backlogs in the treasurer's office but said the town itself is not in any fiscal quandary.
