John Waite was recently appointed Batavia’s fiscal officer.
Waite was serving on village council when he was tapped for the position last month by Mayor John Thebout. The move was prompted by former fiscal officer Anne Lock’s resignation to take a position with the Central Joint Fire-EMS District.
Waite, a retired bank trust officer, has served as a member of village council for many years, beginning in 1995.
Thebout said that picking Waite for the position was a “no-brainer.”
“I considered John’s background and felt that he was a perfect fit,” Thebout said. “He is familiar with the issues, and has lived in the village for a long time.”
