The Parker City Council is one step closer to finding a new city clerk. The search comes after the Council voted to remove the former clerk after her arrest.
Members rated about thirty applicants, and Tuesday they narrowed it down to six.
Last month, the Parker City Council voted to dismiss the former city clerk Adonna Mullen. The motion was in response to Mullen's arrest on charges of filing a false police report and insurance claim and resisting an officer with violence as well as aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer.
Tuesday council members selected six applicants for the position to bring in for an interview.
The applicants are: Nancy Rowell, Donna Patterson, Sarah Hailey, Philip D. Doucet, and DeAnna Black.
Councilman Lott Lawson says the applicants must have strong leadership qualities.
"What we're looking for is someone who has experience in working in city government and also someone who has leadership capability and has occupied positions of leadership. That's the most important," says Lawson.
