FRAMINGHAM - Framingham’s Chief Financial Officer and Director of Administration and Finance Louise Miller has resigned.
In a statement provided to the City Council on Friday, Mayor Charlie Sisitsky confirmed that Miller's resignation will be effective on December 31. Sisitsky said that Miller’s decision, which was made earlier in the week, was accepted following a discussion between the two.
Sisitsky noted in the statement that “all appropriate steps to ensure minimal disruptions to our financial operations” will be taken by city officials going forward.
This comes following weeks of discussions between Miller and the City Council revolving around financial transparency. Multiple councilors have been working towards ensuring that Framingham's key financial records are publicly accessible, in spite of no full-time accountant or assistant accountant being currently available.
“Ms. Miller has agreed to an orderly and smooth transition and she will prepare transition documents that include the current status of all finance responsibilities and tasks,” Sisitsky continued in the statement.
“I want to thank Ms. Miller for her commitment to prepare these documents and I thank her for her nearly 2 years of service to the City.”
The statement was also issued to Superintendent of Framingham Public Schools Dr. Robert Tremblay and Executive Director of Finance and Operations for the school district Lincoln Lynch.
Prior to Sisitsky’s announcement on Friday, Miller told councilors during their December 5 meeting that she was working alongside Sisitsky’s office on providing additional financial details prior to the upcoming City Council meeting on December 19.
