Long-time City Secretary Aimee Nemer has submitted her resignation to the Murphy City Council and is preparing to assume the same position in Richardson on July 30, according to City Manager James Fisher.
“Aimee is one of those rare individuals who makes everyone around her better. Her positive attitude, her incredible work ethic, her vast storehouse of knowledge, and her sense of humor all make her an ideal co-worker, and we will most certainly miss all of those traits,” he said.
The City Secretary is one of a few City employees who are appointed directly by the City Council, and who report directly to that body.
In her letter of resignation, Nemer thanked the Council and pointed to the seven years in Murphy as filled with “many learning experiences that have allowed me to be successful and grow professionally. I have also developed many personal and professional relationships that I hope will continue throughout my career.”
Her tenure at Murphy concludes on July 25, but told the Council she will remain tuned in to the City’s progress. “I look forward to seeing, hearing, and experiencing your successes in the future and I wish you all the best. I know I leave you in good hands with a solid city staff in place,” she said.
Nemer was recently named Municipal Clerk of the Year by the Lone Star Chapter of the Texas Municipal Clerks Association. She earned certification through the Texas Municipal Clerks Certification program at the University of North Texas, and is one of only 19 clerks/city secretaries in Texas to hold a master municipal clerk certificate through the International Institute of Municipal Clerks. The Council will be asked to formally accept her resignation at their July 3 meeting.
Nemer leaves the City with mixed emotions.
“I will always hold a special place in my heart for Murphy and treasure my time here,” she said.
