Myers to succeed Koepp as Town Recorder

The town of Farragut didn’t have to look far to find a successor for the town recorder position — the suitor’s office was just a few doors down from the person who currently holds the title.

Allison Myers, who has been the town’s accounts payable/payroll clerk the past three years, will take over the title of town recorder when the only person to ever hold the position since the town’s incorporation in 1980, Mary Lou Koepp, retires June 30.

“I’m very honored to (fill the position) … it’s some big shoes to fill,” Myers said, who will assume her duties July 1.

Myers was selected from 25 applicants, town administrator Dan Olson said. Of the three applicants Olson chose to interview, Myers was the only certified municipal clerk, a town and state requirement for the position.

Myers attained the certification January 2004. She also holds a bachelor’s degree in marketing from the University of Tennessee.

“I was very excited and honored,” she said of the announcement that she got the job.

“I called my husband, Noah, and said ‘I got it,’” Myers added.

She added that she’s excited to have “more responsibility and, more of a career track.”

In her new position, Myers will be responsible for keeping financial and other official records for the town — including recording the minutes at the Farragut Board of Mayor and Aldermen meetings.

Myers didn’t get many opportunities to keep minutes at the FBMA meetings because “Mary Lou never misses a meeting.”

“I think she missed three meetings in the three years I’ve been here,” Myers said.

She admits she is a little nervous about taking over for Koepp.

“I’m a little nervous because Mary Lou has done it for so long … it might be a little adjustment,” Myers said.

A new job is not the only change in Myers’ life — the couple had their first baby, a boy, Luke, in November 2003.

“When I found out I was having a boy everyone (in the office) was so excited,” she said. “I bring (Luke) here every once and a while so everyone can see him. Our division is kind of like a family.”
