After a summer of upheaval, the financial direction of the city of Tuscaloosa appears to be righted.

City officials have announced the return of three previous workers in the Department of Accounting and Finance, restoring years of experience to previously unfilled positions.

Monday will be the official restart date for Becky Scheeff, the city’s former director of budgets and strategic planning who is returning to the city in a new role as the deputy chief financial officer.

“We’re very, very excited to have her back,” said recently-appointed city Chief Financial Officer Carly Standridge. “There’s nobody better for the position than she is.”

Monday also will mark the return of Holly Esler, who is returning from the University of Alabama to work for the city as a senior accountant.
