Cathy Decker/Staff Reporter

The city of Aledo agreed to hire Sarah Bohnsack as its newest finance director at Monday night's June 4, 2012 meeting. Bohnsack lives in Taylor Ridge, is a CPA and 2 and will work as a contractor for the city, replacing Janice Green who is retiring. Green plans to stay on for a short time during the transition. She has worked for the city nearly six years. "My six year anniversary date is June 16," she said.

Bohnsack negotiated with the city to work as a contractor, rather than employee, earning $55 per hour at an estimated 500 hours annually. The contract is to remain in effect until May 31, 2015, "provided the party elected Mayor of the City in 2013 shall have the right to terminate this contract for a period of 60 days, following the first City Council meeting in May 2013, by delivering not less than 30 days written notice to Bohnsack & Frommelt LLP."

Bohnsack & Frommelt LLP has in the past provided auditing services for the city.
