Did you know the Municipal Clerk holds one of the oldest positions in municipal government?
So diverse is the role of the Municipal Clerk, serving all levels of government and encompassing a variety of state laws, that state legislation was enacted to define the “core duties” of a Municipal Clerk. The Office of the Village Clerk is no different-from being in the front lines during election season… acting as the liaison between our public and local government officials…or issuing various permits and licenses required in the Village. The Office of the Village Clerk plays an integral role in our municipal government.

What are some of our “core duties?” Take a look below:
