FREEPORT — The town is seeking a new finance director after Abbe Yacoben announced she is taking a job in Arizona.

Yacoben, who has been finance director since March 2009, accepted a position as director of finance and budget in Avondale, Arizona. Her last day in Freeport will be Jan. 5, 2015.

“I’m just so excited and thankful,” she said. “I love it here, but I’m ready to take on a little more responsibility.”

Yacoben, who prepared the budgets and financial reports, and supervised payrolls and information technology, said she will miss the people she works with. She said they are hard workers who are “incredibly kind and incredibly productive.”

Freeport is accepting resumes for the position through Dec. 11 at noon. The minimum requirements are a bachelor’s degree and at least five years of experience in municipal finance.
