Councilwoman Marilyn Clay is the first elected official for the City of Cleveland that has obtained the designation of Certified Municipal Officer.
An elected official who completes 72 or more CEUs in one calendar year will obtain the designation of certified municipal official. The 72 CEUs must include two hours of open government training taken in the current award year (one hour of training on the Open Meetings Act and one hour of training on the Public Information Act). This training is required by the State of Texas, and proof of training must be provided in the manner of a certificate or other documentation.
“The City of Cleveland congratulates Mrs. Clay on this accomplishment and recognizes her for her dedication to the community,” a statement from City Manager Kelly McDonald reads.
