The Springboro school board has hired a new treasurer.
Terrah Floyd, chief assistant treasurer in the Loveland City Schools, replaces Al Porter, an interim treasurer hired in September after Tracy Jarvis left to become treasurer of the Xenia City Schools.
Floyd will join the district on Monday, Jan. 6, and be paid $110,000 a year according to a three-year contract approved by the board.
Floyd, a Lebanon resident, has almost 20 years of finance and accounting, including 14 years as an assistant in the Loveland district’s treasurer’s office.
“She brings a lot to the table,” Springboro Board Member Wendy Kull said.
Floyd’s contract also authorizes the hiring of an auditor to assess the district’s finances for up to $30,000, as well as a firm “with qualifications similar to those of MLA Associates” for up to $15,000 to conduct an financial and management operations review of the treasurer’s office.
Last month, the board reconsidered plans to hire MLA , a firm headed by Seth Morgan, a former state representative and Huber Heights council member, after residents questioned the $15,000 contract and Morgan’s connection to Board President Kelly Kohls through conservative political organizations.
Kohls could not be reached.
Floyd said she planned to hire an auditor to review the district’s books, but was unsure if she would commission the management review of her office.
“It may not even be necessary at all,” she said.
Floyd, mother of four children, said she looked forward to working in a “kid-friendly” community.
