Moab native was controller at Lisbon Valley Mining Co.
The Moab City Council didn’t have to look too far for the city’s next finance director.
The council in a brief Friday meeting voted unanimously to hire Klint York.
York in a brief introduction during the electronic meeting said he grew up in Moab until he went to college and then returned to work at the Lisbon Valley Mine as its controller.
York told council members the “strange times” that are happening today mean there would likely be “a lot of work ahead.”
“Based on your resume and experience in finance work … and with cash flow projections and budgeting, I’m very happy to have you join our team,” said Mayor Emily Niehaus. York began Monday. He replaces longtime city employee Rachel Stenta, who was recently hired as business administrator for the Grand County School District.
