Municipal Court Director & Court Clerk Earn Prestigious Texas Court Clerk Association Annual Awards


The Texas Court Clerk’s Association’s 2018 verdicts are in:

  • MCTX Director of Municipal Court Services Brittany Rychlik has earned the organization’s Excellence Award for “exemplary performance of an individual in the court profession, serving in a non-judicial capacity”; and 
  • MCTX Court Clerk Dominique Garrick has earned the Distinguished Service Award which highlights “a service, program, task or endeavor performed by an individual in a court profession, serving in a non-judicial capacity.”


Rychlik, who has served with the City since January, 2017 received the award at TCCA’s annual conference banquet on Tuesday, Oct. 9 in Plano, Texas. In a news release regarding its decision, TCCA also said the recognition is given to an individual “who brings honor, public awareness or enhances the image of the Association, and whose actions through major achievements, benefit the entire membership by consistently demonstrating professionalism and the pursuit of excellence. The recipient may receive this award only once in a lifetime and must have previously received the Distinguished Service and Extraordinary Achievement awards.” Rychlik earned the Distinguished Service recognition in 2014 and the Extraordinary Achievement designation in 2016. Also in 2016, she was named “Clerk of the Year” by the TCCA Gulf Coast Chapter.

“We are so proud of Brittany and no one is more deserving of this award. Through her hard work, she is continually striving to streamline processes and generate public awareness about this honorable profession,” said Assistant City Manager Bill Atkinson, who oversees the Police Department, Fire & Rescue Services, Municipal Court and Code Enforcement. “Through her example, she has created a great team that will continue to do great things.”

In addition to recognizing Rychlik at its recent conference, TCCA also honored Garrick for her ongoing, high-quality professional efforts that “benefits the entire membership in a distinctive way by showing dedication and commitment.”

Rychlik said she “nominated Dominique for her improvement and excellence in customer service skills and communication skills. Due to her growth, we are also developing her in more leadership/court administration areas to one day assist in leading the team.”

City Manager Anthony J. Snipes applauded the accomplishment of both team members saying: “These achievements are yet another example of our exemplary public servants who consistently provide superior customer service to the citizens and of their commitment to the City values of our high-performance organization.”
