The Weybridge treasurer who admits embezzling over $100,000 from the town also managed the finances of the town school district.

Karen Brisson resigned her position as Weybridge town clerk and treasurer after confessing her theft to the town select board. No criminal charges have been filed and the town is conducting an audit of its books to determine the full extent of the missing funds.

However, Brisson was also the treasurer for the Weybridge Town School District. School officials say they learned of Brisson's resignation from the town Monday. School superintendent Gail Conley said, "We are confident that no school funds are missing. However, to be 100 percent accurate we have hired out auditing firm... to do a forensic audit."
