Interim CFO No More, Katie Chen Takes Over in Oradell
The former Ridgewood principal accountant will serve in a dual role of Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer
After several years as the principal accountant in Ridgewood and the past few months as an interim Chief Financial Officer, Katie Chen's position within the borough of Oradell was finalized on Tuesday night when she was sworn into office.
While Chen took over the responsibilities of the borough's Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer in mid-February, her official swearing in ceremony was postponed until the public meeting.
According to Borough Administrator/Clerk Laura Graham, Chen's dual role will eventually revert to her only serving as the CFO once a part-time treasurer could be hired.
As a Certified Municipal Finance Officer, Chen will supervise financial personnel, monitor budget expenditures, assist in the preparation of the annual budget and act as financial advisor to the Mayor and Council.
