City Clerk

​​​​​​​The municipal clerk is one of the oldest government professions and has been traced to the year 1272 A.D.  For centuries the municipal clerk has performed the archival functions of the governing body. The Clerk serves as the direct link between the citizens and their government and is the historian of the community and its people, for the entire recorded history of the government's actions are in the care of your City Clerk.   Read more about the City Clerk's Office.
