The position became open with the retirement of Jodi Welch, who worked for the city for 32 years.

Tomaszewski’s responsibilities will include accounting, budgeting, financing reporting, grant administration, payrolls and sales taxes as well as the municipal court. A certified public accountant, she previously served as assistant finance director for the City of Santa Maria, Calif.

“We are very pleased to have someone of Jennifer’s caliber as the finalist in our search for a new finance director,” said City Manager Greg Caton. “Jennifer has a wealth of knowledge and experience to bring to this new role in addition to providing leadership of a well-established team.”
