PARRISH — Mayor Wayne Gross and the Parrish Town Council recently recognized town clerk Marcy Brown for completing all of her education to become a certified municipal clerk.

“The plaque that Marcy has received to certify her as a municipal clerk does not stand for something that can be simply completed with the click of a mouse — it stands for several hours of intense study and the understanding of how a municipality can operate at maximum efficiency,” Gross said. “She has accomplished this achievement so that she can better serve our community — the Town of Parrish — and know the answers to important questions instead of redirecting those inquiries to other areas. We’re all very proud of her and her hard work”

In other action from Tuesday night’s meeting:

•The council voted unanimously to pass ordinance 30612-3-12-12 for the establishment of an annual sales tax holiday. The ordinance will permit the council to set the holiday yearly without having to pass subsequent ordinances in the before each date.

Due to construction of the Parrish Municipal Park, practices will be held at the Parrish Church of the Nazarene’s gymnasium.

•A motion to annex Thomas Kyzer’s residence into Parrish’s town limits passed unanimously.

•Gross gave an update on the construction of a tornado shelter in the town’s limits, stating that the structure will be built in the area of the old Bank of Parrish property.
