Bolton's treasurer resigns


Bolton’s town treasurer, Joanne Jenkins, has resigned from her job in the wake of concern about the administration of the town’s life insurance policy, said Town Administrator Jodi Ross.

Jenkins had been placed on paid administrative leave last month.
Selectman Ken Troup said the Savings Bank Life Insurance Co. dropped the town in May 2005, but employees continued to pay premiums even though they were no longer receiving coverage.

‘‘We didn’t know about it, and we were concerned when we discovered it,’’ said Troup.

He said employees will be reimbursed for the premiums for the period they weren’t covered. The amount involved is less than $50 per employee.

Ross said that the problem was administrative and no criminal investigation is being conducted.
