GREENBURGH, N.Y. Town Court Administrator Regina Hill's resignation last Thursday was allegedly met with controversy, but now it seems as though her departure is simply amicable.
Hill met with the Town Board in executive session Tuesday to discuss her departure. Her last day, according to Town Supervisor Paul Feiner, is Jan. 6, 2012.
"I have resigned from Greenburgh Town Court because it is time for me to move on," Hill's resignation note read. "I have put a lot of effort into turning the court around and believe that I've made significant progress in doing so."
Hill was hired mid-2010 to help the town's court system function more effectively. She was also the person responsible for finding roughly 85,000 traffic tickets that could earn the town roughly $4 million. While it was rumored that Hill was having problems with Feiner and Alan Hochberg, chair of the Budget Oversight Committee, she stated publicly that was untrue.
Hill's note continued to say that she has confidence in the new judge lineup, soon to be consisting of Hon. Arlene Gordon-Oliver, Hon. Delores Brathwaite and Hon. Walter Rivera.
"Regina did a good job," said Feiner. "I think she's a hard worker. She tightened up a lot of the work. Regina set a good foundation. While I'm disappointed that she's leaving, we will find someone to take over."
Feiner and Judge Charles Apotheker, who supervises the local courts in the district, will look for a new court administrator, as Hill will become Port Chester's chief clerk.
