Strider No Longer Robbins Finance Director
Robbins is looking for a new finance director to replace Vicky Strider.
“Vicky did a lot of work for Robbins,” Mayor Theron Bell said. “She did a lot of things that weren’t even part of her job, like picking up trash paper off the streets. We hope the manager will find somebody soon to take over and help us move forward.”
Bell is out of town on vacation, but spoke by telephone this morning.
On Friday, a public notice went out that the Robbins Town Board would hold an emergency session late in the afternoon for the purpose of naming an interim finance officer, as the law requires. The board gave Town Manager George Hayfield that authority, and he will sign in the capacity of finance officer while he advertises for someone to take Strider’s position.
Robbins is making no official statement as to whether Strider resigned or was dismissed. Hayfield said he cannot comment, as it is a personnel matter. Strider had held the job for several years, beginning in the position when Robbins was still under its former mayor/council charter.
