City Clerk

The City Clerk's Office consists of three divisions: Administration, Elections, and Records Management. The Elections Division is mobilized only during the period when elections are conducted.

The City Charter mandates that the City Clerk keep all books, papers, records and other documents; attend all meetings of the Mayor and City Council; and keep minutes of all Council meetings. Many public records are accessible online by clicking Search For Records Online. The City Clerk is empowered to administer all oaths, keep a record of all demands, maintain official books and records (keeping them properly indexed and open to public inspection) and to countersign all warrants.


In addition to Charter-mandated services provided by this office, the City Clerk is also responsible for serving as filing officer for Statements of Economic Interest, Campaign Statements, and Appeals. Processing ordinances and resolutions, coordinating required legal advertisements, and preparing all Council agendas are done by the City Clerk's Office.
