March 27, 2015

Louisville – The members of the Louisville Metro Council are honoring someone who has quietly worked behind the scenes to ensure that the details of ordinances, resolutions, committee minutes and summaries are accurate and preserved as officials documents.

On Tuesday March 31st, Kay Grissett, Assistant Metro Council Clerk will retire after serving 27 years of work serving the people of Metro Louisville and Jefferson County.

“Kay has been an amazing asset to this office not only with her institutional knowledge, but her work ethic was phenomenal” says Metro Council Clerk Stephen Ott. “She has served the people of Metro Louisville well and she will be missed by all of us.”

Kay spent the first 15 years of her public service in the Jefferson County Fiscal Court and then she transitioned into the Metro Council Clerk’s Office for the next 12 years.

She was promoted to Deputy Fiscal Court Clerk during her time at the JCFCCO. She was critical in compiling, preserving and providing Jefferson County documents and files for use in the Council Clerk's Office. She also served on the transition committee from Fiscal Court Clerk's Office to Metro Council Clerk's Office

Serving as an Assistant Council Clerk, Kay obtained her Kentucky Municipal Clerk Certification and was recognized as a Kentucky Colonel.

 In her time with the Council, she primarily handled the records of complex zoning cases and the Land Development Code, but was also very well known to find most errors in documents before they were codified into law and formal documentation

“Kay is a very quiet person and very dedicated worker, one of those who is not in the spotlight but is just as professional as any one you will find working in government today.” said President David Tandy (D-4). “We wish her well in her retirement.”
