Kyle Booth promoted to Pelham Manor treasurer; John Pierpont honored for 28 years of service as village manager

At center, retired Village Manager John Pierpont received a proclamation from Mayor Jennifer Monachino Lapey, surrounded by family and village board members and staff.

Kyle Booth was sworn in as the village treasurer during the Village of Pelham Manor Board of Trustees meeting on April 24. 

Retired Village Manager John Pierpont had also held the post of treasurer, along with that of village clerk and head of the department of public works. When new Village Manager Lindsey Luft took the job in January, she was also given the posts of clerk and superintendent of public works.

“Booth was serving with distinction as the deputy village treasurer for some time,” said Mayor Jennifer Monachino Lapey. “He comes to us from the private sector. He has an accounting degree from Sienna College. Booth has been a tremendous asset in helping Village Managers Pierpont and Luft.”

“We get very good reports from the controller’s office in New York City, and it is because of the hard work of people like Kyle Booth,” said Monachino Lapey. 

At the meeting, Pierpont was honored for his 28 years of hard work and dedication to the village, with his wife Dianne and children Andrew and Emily joining those in attendance in a standing ovation for the former village manager. He announced his retirement in October. 

“I have had the honor of evaluating situations with him, hearing his perspective and benefiting from his ideas,” Monachino Lapey said. “We always come up with a collaborative end when we disagree on something.”

Pierpont has been working with Luft since she arrived in January.

“John Pierpont has left Pelham Manor better than he found, it and we will miss him very much,” Monachino Lapey said.
