Aberdeen welcomes new fiscal officer

By Martha Jacob –

When the Village of Aberdeen’s fiscal officer Nathan Pfeffer handed in his letter of resignation on Dec. 22, 2016, Mayor Jason Phillips and council began its search for his replacement.
The new fiscal officer was recently appointed by council with the hiring of Karen Campbell who brings with her 25 years of accounting experience.
“I had just recently retired from my  job after 25 years when I saw an ad in the Brown County Press that the Village of Aberdeen was looking for a fiscal officer,” Campbell said. “I live in Aberdeen and I wanted to find something part-time just to stay busy and at the same time further my accounting career.
“This is my town and I I’ve always wanted to see this village prosper and I felt that this would be a good challenge for me to do just that. I foresee a bright future for Aberdeen.”
Campbell said she believes anything is possible with the current members of council, a good mayor and police chief and administrator as well as all the employees.
“This group of people now in charge of the village all work very well together,” Campbell said, “that tells me that we are moving this village forward in the right direction.
“They all want to help market and repair this village to a place that everyone would want to visit.”
“Since I first started a few weeks ago, I have been working many long days and nights trying to get everything to the way I want to see the village finances and filing to look like. I am a very obsessive person to cleanliness and correctness and I feel within the next few months myself and the council will get a good knowledge of village revenue and appropriations and then begin to make sure our finances are on track to where they should be.”
Campbell said that the finance committee is meeting regularly and she feels some finances may have to be tightened to balance the 2017 budget.
