The role of a Municipal Clerk is often a misunderstood position in local government. To the uninformed, clerks are often thought to fulfill a primarily clerical role. The importance of the position's role, however, is quite clear. The tasks are dictated by law or statute and include some of the most basic services expected by residents. In fact, municipal clerks are often the first and most direct link between residents and government. The position is also responsible for providing transparency in local government.
The City Clerk has a statutory duty to record the official minutes of all City Council meetings, maintain original Resolutions and Ordinances, and is the custodian of the City Seal. Additionally, the City Clerk is the Chief Election Officer for municipal elections.
