Treasurer is asked to stay on


The Medina Board of Education announced Tuesday after a special meeting it intends to offer Treasurer David Chambers a three-year contract to remain in the position he has held since April 2014.

Board President Doug Eastwood said it was the district’s intention to offer Chambers a raise from his base salary of $100,918 in the new agreement.

Details remain to be finalized in the contract, which is expected to be submitted for board approval March 20.

The board needed to call the special meeting because of an Ohio law stipulating that decisions on public school treasurers’ contracts must be made by March 1 in the year in which they expire.

Chambers’ contract runs through July 31.

“We like him (Chambers),” board member Rebecca Parkhurst said after the meeting. “We’re going to keep him.”

Fellow board member Rob Skidmore said: “We are happy. He’s doing an excellent job and we are appreciative of his services.”

Chambers, 52, said he believes the district “has been conservative” in its financial management over the past 3 1/2 years.

He added there have been three state audits since he’s held the position “and each one seemed to get better.”

Chambers, a native of Euclid and graduate of the University of Dayton with a marketing degree and minor in accounting, has worked in school districts in Shaker Heights, Parma, Sheffield-Sheffield Lake, Fairview Park and Fremont.
