NORTH KINGSTOWN—On Monday evening, North Kingstown Town Manager Michael Embury defended the town’s position in contracting approximately $38,000 in non-audit services this past fall after the departure of town finance controller Jeanna Krukowski, who followed former finance director Patricia Sunderland to a position in South Kingstown last July.

Embury explained that the work was done by LGC&D, a CPA and business advising firm, on an emergency basis because of the controller’s departure in order to finish last year’s budget process.
