Barbara Young became St. George’s first town administrator last month.
“We are excited to have our first town administrator,” Selectboard Chairwoman Lisa Dillon Beliveau said. “For a little town, we have a lot going on. We are excited Barbara will help take us to the next level. It is nice to have her back helping the Selectboard.”
At its annual town meeting last March, the town approved a budget that included funding for the new town administrator position. Young began July 14, working 20 hours a week.
Young was the town clerk and treasurer for St. George from 2006 to 2012. She and her husband moved to Las Vegas for a year for his work, then returned to
Vermont.
“It’s going great,” she said of her new role. “I love being back with the town.”
Currently, Young is focused on revamping the town’s website, working to make it more content oriented and streamlined.
“My main goal is to serve the Selectboard in whatever capacity it wants me to,” she said. “They determine the priorities of things and they are basically driving the bus.”
Young is a graduate of Mary Baldwin College in Virginia and holds a Masters in Business Administration from Northeastern University in Boston.
