After nearly a year of uncertainty, the Tonawanda Board of Education Tuesday night hired Rubie R. Harris as the new director of business and finance.

An accountant with the Niagara Falls City School District, Harris will assume the post on July 7, making a pro-rated salary of $75,000. He will work under a three-year probationary period.

The district has been without a regular business administrator since the retirement of Stephen Perry late last year. Richard Hedges, a BOCES administrator, has been serving in the role on an interim basis.
