The City Clerk acts as the day to day administrative officer of the City. The Clerk is a liaison between the Governing Body and taxpayers, and often is a resident’s initial point of contact in municipal matters. The Clerk serves as the custodian of official records and as recording secretary to the Governing Body, keeping minutes of official meetings. The Clerk’s Office is also responsible for processing numerous municipal permits and licenses, including all marriage licenses. The City Clerk also serves as the chief elections officer for the City, ensuring official tallies from City voting precincts are properly reported to the County Clerk.
