Phyllis Anderson Sallee closed out a distinguished career of 36 years at Wilmore as the City Clerk on September 30th. Her family including father, brother, and son have served Wilmore and Jessamine County a combined 122 years.
Phyllis started her career at the City as police dispatch and utility billings clerk. In her most recent years she served as City Clerk/ Utility Billings Clerk. She was the Mayor’s right hand (and left hand) and the staff’s “go to” girl. Whenever a question arose Phyllis knew the answer or would get the answer. Phyllis’ dedication to her job was unmatched. Phyllis was responsible for city council minutes and agendas, administration of ordinances, property taxes, payroll taxes, business licenses, insurance premium taxes, cemetery bookkeeping, and utility bills.
Most importantly Phyllis treated everyone that walked in City Hall like family greeting them with the same constant smile and sweet demeanor. Just about everyone in the City knows Phyllis and considers her a friend. The City thanked Phyllis for her service with a farewell reception held Sept 30th. Phyllis will be missed but she will be off enjoying her well-deserved retirement with her husband, 3 children and their spouses, and 6 grandchildren (all girls). Happy Retirement Phyllis! You will be missed!
