Yorktown town comptroller Joan Goldberg, who has served the town for the last 16 years, was appointed this morning as the town administrator in North Castle.
Goldberg, who found out late this afternoon about her appointment to the position, told Patch she will begin her new job later next month. The announcement comes three months after the majority of Yorktown town board members in May.
"It's an opportunity for me," Goldberg told Patch of her new job. "It's exciting. As much as I love Yorktown, this is something I have to do for me."
Of the duties she will be performing at her new position, she said she has already been performing them for a number of years in Yorktown.
"Now I get the official recognition of the title and the proper salary," said Goldberg, who currently makes $110,000 in Yorktown and her new salary as North Castle's town administrator will be $135,000, not including benefits.
The 47-year-old Mahopac resident holds a Bachelor's Degree in accounting from Iona College and a Master's Degree in public administration from Merrick College.
