NORTH BALTIMORE — During its last session of 2018, North Baltimore Council on Tuesday welcomed a new village administrator and continued the search for a new fiscal officer.

Michael Brillhart attended his first meeting Tuesday as village administrator. He had been selected to replace Allyson Murray, who departed for Westerville.

“I’m pleased to be here,” Brillhart said told council.

He grew up in Dayton.

In other employee issues, Village Council is looking for a new finance officer. Melanie Lee stepped down from that role earlier this month.

Mayor Janet Goldner said the job will be posted.

Separately, council is striving for a better understanding of the bookkeeping of the village.

Some confusion in budget numbers has arisen among village officials due, in part, to software issues.

“There’s a lot to be cleaned up,” interim Finance Officer Tony Swartz said. “I’m not alarmed by it.”

In other business, council:

• Held a closed executive session for the stated purpose of discussing economic development.

• Said the next meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 2, in the municipal building.
