On July 1, Joseph Sfara was selected as Fiscal Officer for the Western Reserve Joint Fire District (WRJFD). Sfara brings a high level of experience to the office as well as deep community roots.

Sfara graduated from Poland Seminary High School in 1993 and went on to earn his BS in accounting at Youngstown State University.

"I have worked as an accountant since 2000, with a focus on governmental accounting," Sfara said.

As for prior involvement with the WRJFD, Sfara said he had worked with the former fiscal officer in preparing certificates of estimated resources and other budget related items. He did this while serving as a budget analyst for the Mahoning County Auditor's Office in 2006.

As the district's key financial agent, Sfara said he does have a few challenges ahead.

"[My biggest challenges] are learning all of the nuances of being the fiscal officer for a public entity and identifying fire district specific protocol of operations," he said.

As for the future, Sfara said, "I hope to see the fire district continue its current path of serving the community in a fiscally responsible and efficient manner, while maintaining high quality protection services."
