Urbanna Treasurer Position Questioned

Urbanna has been operating without a town treasurer since March 25, 2013. The Southside Sentinal reports that town resident Janet Smith raised a “point of order” near the end of the Urbanna Town Council meeting on Monday, that the state code and town charter require the town to have a treasurer.

In response to Smith’s comment on Monday night, Urbanna Mayor Don Richwine said he has been the “acting treasurer.“
Smith however, claims that under the state code an elected official cannot serve as treasurer.
