A hearing on the city's lawsuit against former Assistant Finance Director Sharon Scanlon has been scheduled for September 24, 9:30 a.m. at Superior Court in Milford.
Court documents filed this month say for a three-year period (July 2009 to July 2012), Scanlon "took for her own benefit funds in at least the amount of $348,416 owned by the city of Shelton."
The documents also say the city will ask the judge to place a lien on Scanlon's home, 23 Crescent Drive, to ensure restitution.
Scanlon had been assistant finance director for 17 years. She "had the fiscal responsibility for" reconciling bank statements, monthly financial reports, and originating and tracking each check issued by the city of Shelton." Tax Board Vice Chair Jimmy Tickey said last week that the Board had not received a monthly budget report since May. Just this week the 2012 fiscal year-end report.
Paul Hiller, Fairfield's former Chief Fiscal Officer, has been hired to and has started working in Shelton City Hall's finance department.
