Did you know?
Did you know that before there were mayors, town councils and town managers, there were town clerks? The municipal clerk is the oldest of public servants in local government, along with the tax collector, and the profession traces back before Biblical times. Then and now, the municipal clerk’s office serves as a direct link between citizens of the community and their government. The Clerk serves as the custodian of official public records; communicator of public policy; organizer of public business; recorder of the community's history; and performer of many varied tasks that assist in the smooth operation of local governance. The municipal clerk's office serves the citizens, the mayor, the city council, the city manager, and all departments of the city without exception.
