"No other office in municipal service has so many contacts. It serves the mayor, the city council, the city manager (when there is one), and all administrative departments without exception. All of them call upon it, almost daily, for some service or information. Its work is not spectacular, but it demands versatility, alertness, accuracy, and no end of patience. The public does not realize how many loose ends of city administration this office pulls together."

Professor William Bennett Munro

 

The city clerk’s office is dedicated to serving the needs of our public and internal customers in a friendly, professional, and cooperative manner.
