City Clerk

Responsibilities

The City Clerk is an officer of the City that is appointed by the City Council and is required by State law and the City Charter. Functioning much like the Secretary of State, the City Clerk maintains the integrity of the election process, ensures transparency and access to city records, facilitates the city’s legislative process, and is the record keeper of local government history. The City Clerk acts as the compliance officer for federal, state, and local statutes, including the Open Meetings Act and the Public Information Act, and serves as the filing authority for campaign finance reports and financial disclosure statements. The Clerk’s office facilitates the appointments for all Boards and Commissions and issues various permits.
