Hill comes with nine years of experience serving as the Principal Accountant for the City of Vineland, where she previously held the title of Accounting/Finance Co-op. While in Vineland, she was intimately involved in all aspects of the Financial Department, including preparing the Annual Financial Statement, Annual Debt Statement, municipal and utility budget and supervising employees. In total, Vineland’s municipal and utility budgets total over $175 million in 2020, compared to Hamilton’s total of $125 million in 2020.
“I am eager to work with Mayor Martin and for this new opportunity to serve the residents of Hamilton Township. I look forward to building a strong financial foundation for Hamilton and finding long term solutions to build its economic health,” said Hill.
Hill is a graduate of Rowan University with a Bachelor of Arts in Accounting. She is a Certified Municipal Finance Officer, attaining her certification in 2016.
“I am excited to have Yolanda join my leadership team and fill this critical position,” said Mayor Martin. “I am thankful for her willingness to serve and am confident that the residents of Hamilton Township will be well-served by her ambition, experience and dedication to public service. “
“I would also like to thank our Business Administrator Kathy Monzo for filling the position of Acting CFO while we searched for a permanent hire. I know Kathy and Yolanda, working together as a team, are the perfect fit to ensure a strong financial future for Hamilton.”
Hill will assume the role of Director of Finance/Chief Financial Officer on Monday, July 27, 2020. This nomination requires, and is expected to receive, the consent of the Hamilton Township Council.
