Coventry Select Board Not Happy Town Clerk Working For Listers

Staff Writer

The Coventry Select Board told town lister Lyell Reed Monday that they don't want town clerk, treasurer and delinquent tax Cynthia Diaz serving as secretary for the listers. Over the past several months, the selectboard has claimed that Diaz has not cooperated during an outside audit. Diaz did not attend the meeting.

“We’ve come to the conclusion that it's not a good fit,” select board chairman Mike Marcotte said. “There is the ability to manipulate the system with one person doing all the input plus having access to the other pieces of the (accounting) system.”
