Tyrone’s town clerk vacancy did not take long to fill and the person now in the position has been in municipal service for a large portion of the past two decades. But beyond experience it is her outlook on service that speaks volumes.

Megill has lived in Douglasville since August when she and her husband moved to Georgia. Prior to moving here she spent the majority of work time in city government in Copperas Cove and The Colony, Texas where she served in positions such as city secretary, deputy city secretary and executive secretary to the city manager.

In all, Megill has had significant experience is municipal operations, something she said will help her serve the citizens of Tyrone.

“I was looking to get my career back on track and I wanted to get back into this profession,” said the first-time Georgia resident, having been brought here by her husband’s relocation at Fort Mac.

Like many of Tyrone’ residents, Megill takes government service and the job of a town clerk seriously.

“A good clerk strives to uphold the legal procedures involved with how the town manages its records and fulfills its obligations to the citizens. The job has myriad different aspects, which I enjoy. No two days are alike and none are ever boring,” Megill explained. “My ultimate goal is to serve the citizens and the town and promote good government. I’m extremely honored and privileged to be offered this position and I’m committed to do a good job for the citizens, my fellow staff and the elected officials.”

Megill was certified under the Texas Municipal Clerks Certification Program and by the International Institute of Municipal Clerks.
