A top official in one of the Albany County Hilltowns has resigned amid allegations of fraud.

Rensselaerville Town Supervisor Steve Pfleging has apparently admitted writing multiple unauthorized checks from the town's payroll account in excess of $10,000. 

Deputy Supervisor John Dolce, at Thursday night's meeting, said the town is "not okay with this," and he promises "everything is going to change.  

Pfleging is said to be the subject of a State Police investigation involving possible fraud. 

Pfleging, a Democrat, won election as the town's supervisor last November.
