PRESCOTT – Prescott Treasurer Matthew Armstrong will be adding chief administrative officer duties to his workload.

The Town of Prescott announced today (May 8) that Armstrong will take on the CAO duties at the end of the month.

Armstrong – a CPA and CGA – has been treasurer for the town since July 2016 and will continue to oversee the finance department.

“Matthew has done fantastic work for us in so many areas these past two years with our finances and also our human resources and information technology departments that this was a very easy decision to make,” Mayor Brett Todd said in a statement.

Armstrong takes over for Pierre Mercier, who announced his retirement in April.
