What is a City Clerk?

  • Dictionary.com
    • City Clerk
      • A city official who maintains public records and vital statistics, issues licenses, etc.
  • Wikipedia
    • Municipal Clerk
      • A senior official in many municipal governments; elected or appointed.
      • Duties vary even more than their titles. It is difficult to fully describe a clerk’s duties, because there are hundreds of different jobs a clerk may fulfill.

But what do you do?

Functioning much like the Secretary of State, the City Clerk is the local official responsible for:

  • Maintaining the integrity of the election process
  • Ensuring transparency and access to City records in compliance with the Texas Open Meetings Act and Texas Public Information Act
  • Recording and preserving local government history and safeguarding the City’s records
  • Serving as the compliance officer for federal, state, and local statutes
  • Serving as the filing authority for campaign finance reports and financial disclosure statements.
