A Great Barrington town employee who was under investigation earlier this year after an audit revealed that money was missing from town coffers is being arraigned this afternoon. According to Berkshire District Attorney Andrea Harrington, Deborah Ball, former assistant treasurer/tax collector for the town, will be arraigned at 2:00 p.m. in Berkshire Superior Court in Pittsfield.
