The City of Bethel’s Finance Director, Jim Chevigny, has unexpectedly resigned. His resignation comes right after the City’s budget was finalized. The city administration confirmed with KYUK on Wednesday that Chevigny’s resignation is effective immediately, adding that they do not expect any disruption to the Finance Department’s operations.
The Assistant Finance Director’s duties were already being performed for Bethel through a contract with a certified public accounting firm; the city plans to hire another CPA in the coming weeks. The city administration did not comment on Chevigny’s departure.
