The City of Merriam’s new finance director, Donna Oliver, started today.
Oliver will be responsible for managing the City’s budget and financial reporting. Her department also oversees investments, accounts payable, and accounts receivable.
“I’m so excited to join Team Merriam,” Oliver said. “I’m very impressed with all the activity in the City - from art to economic development, a new community center, and numerous trails, it’s obvious that Merriam is on the move.”
Oliver comes from Riverside, Missouri, where she served as its finance director since 2012. She started her career in municipal finance about 25 years ago as a staff accountant in Overland Park.
Oliver has twin boys and is a “rabid” Kansas City Royals and Chiefs fan.
