GREENFIELD — The Town of Greenfield has promoted Principal Account Clerk Cara Parks to the role of Director of Fiscal Management.
Parks, who joined Greenfield’s staff in 2021, oversees accounts receivable and payable, payroll, trend analysis, loan transactions, and investments. She also serves as the Budget Officer for the town and advises the board on developments affecting Greenfield’s fiscal outlook.
“It is a constant battle to recruit and retain great employees,” said Town Supervisor Kevin Veitch in a statement. “[Parks’] responsibilities have long surpassed the role of Principal Account Clerk and we think this new title is a better fit.”
Parks is a resident of Burnt Hills, a mother of four, and a member of the AGA, a national association for finance-related government professionals. She has a degree in economics from Russell Sage College in Troy. She also has thirty years of experience, including municipal positions at the Town of Charlton and the Town of Galway.
