Seneca job search ends

Seneca’s search for a new clerk-treasurer/finance officer took the city to the state’s Public Service Authority (Santee Cooper) at Moncks Corner.  Approved after a closed-door session of the city council last night was Josh Riches, who will start his Seneca duties October 2.  According to City Administrator Greg Dietterick, Riches has a background in financial analysis at Santee Cooper, where he conducted rate studies for the state agency that produces electricity and treats and sells water wholesale.  The Seneca job has been opened for several months since the resignation of Joel Seavey.
