Panama City, FL –
PARKER, Florida (WMBB) – The town of Parker is now looking for a new City Clerk.
Council held a special meeting Friday morning to discuss the resignation of City Clerk Karen Griffin.
Mayor Andrew Kelly said Griffin was the town clerk for two years and is now out of town on emergency leave.
Griffin submitted his two week notice last week and Mayor Kelly presented it to council on Friday.
A motion was made to accept the resignation immediately, but the motion was rejected.
Mayor Kelly said Griffin’s last official day as city clerk was Friday August 9.
The city now has two key positions to fill, including that of accountant.
“Right now, Human Resources is collecting applications and posting them on different websites,” said Mayor Kelly. “We’ll see who we get for the candidates, and we’ll take it from there. “
Council member Stacie Galbreath said making the decision to immediately accept Griffin’s resignation would have been the worst decision for the city, as several positions are open.
“We can’t afford to have no accountant, no city clerk, a brand new code enforcement officer… We can’t do that to the city,” Galbreath said. “It’s a horrible decision.”
The next municipal council meeting will take place on Tuesday August 3 at 5:30 p.m.
