“I would also like to thank our Business Administrator Kathy Monzo for filling the position of Acting CFO and Tax Collector Danielle Peacock for assuming the position of Acting Director of Finance while we searched for a new hire.”
Peddicord will assume the role of Director of Finance/Chief Financial Officer on Monday, March 22, 2021. This nomination requires, and is expected to receive, the consent of the Hamilton Township Council.
