Heidi Holland has been selected to serve as the new town clerk for the Town of Clayton.
Holland has served as the deputy town clerk for the town for the past four years and as both the deputy town clerk and the executive assistant to the town manager for the past five months. She will be replacing former Town Clerk Kimberly Moffett, who retired in March of this year after seven years of service to the town.
“I am pleased that Heidi has accepted the position of town clerk,” said Clayton Mayor Jody McLeod. “Over the past several months, Heidi has proven to be an exceptional leader and has worked hard to obtain the necessary certifications for the town clerk position. I am confident she will continue to serve the town and the council in a distinguished and professional manner.”
Holland earned her North Carolina Certified Municipal Clerk certification in 2021 followed by her Certified Municipal Clerk (CMC) certification in 2022. She also holds an associate degree from the Art Institute of Pittsburg.
“I love Clayton and am glad to be a part of such a great community,” said Holland. “I am very grateful to work with such an amazing group, and I am looking forward to this opportunity.”
As town clerk, Holland will be responsible for maintaining the permanent public records and other documents related to the town’s business. She also is responsible for creating, certifying, and archiving town council minutes, ordinances, and resolutions, and maintains the official listings of the boards of council.
Additionally, she is responsible for giving notice of town council meetings and a variety of other public notices and other functions by law or as the town council requires.
Holland added that she plans to continue to look for ways to increase efficiency including streamlining workflows for creating agendas and moving more processes online.
“I’ve had a chance to work with Heidi in various roles over the last few years and watched her excel at everything she does,” said Interim Town Manager Rich Cappola. “She has a lot of great ideas for the Town Clerk’s Office, and I believe she will do an excellent job of moving us forward in a positive direction.”
