COVINGTON, KY – The City of Covington congratulates its Finance Analyst, Lindy Jenkins, on earning her Kentucky Municipal Clerk certification.
Jenkins received the certification on July 21, 2017.
It takes three years to obtain Kentucky Clerk certification status, and requires pertinent experience in a municipality.
Applicants must successfully complete 120 hours of course study outlined by the Kentucky Municipal Clerks Association (KMCA) Education Committee and as approved by the International Institute of Municipal Clerks at the KMCA and Martin School of Public Policy and Administration, University of Kentucky.
Interim City Manager Loren Wolff stated, “The City is very proud of Lindy for achieving this great accomplishment. We commend her for her hard work and determination.”
“This is a well-deserved honor,” said Assistant City Manager/City Solicitor Frank Warnock. “It takes time, focus, study and planning.”
Jenkins began her educational training when she was working in the Legal Department working as a Legal Assistant. She advanced to her present position in the Finance Department.
“Succession planning is a long-term life-blood of a vibrant, progressive organization,” said Warnock. “Our present City Clerk, Maggie Nyhan, isn’t going anywhere, and she’s the greatest City Clerk of all time. Opportunities to advance in an organization are part of what makes many employees feel engaged. They want to grow and contribute.”
Clerks serve the Board of Commissioners, Board of Adjustment, and the Urban Designed Review Board, too.
In 2010, Jenkins earned her Associates degree/Paralegal certificate from Cincinnati State Technical and Community College. In 2012, Jenkins continued her education earning her Bachelor of Arts degree in Organizational Leadership and minor in Public Administration from Northern Kentucky University.
Jenkins began working for the City of Covington in 2007 as the Clerk Typist V. In 2013, she was promoted to the Tax Auditor position where she continued to excel, advancing into the City’s Legal Assistant position. In 2017, she was again promoted to her current Finance Analyst position.
