City Secretary
The City Secretary is one of the oldest public servant roles in local government. The position existed before Biblical times as "Keeper of the Archives".  Before the communication tool of writing, the Town Clerk was known as the "Remembrancer" because their memory served as the official public record .In present days, the City Secretary remains the "Keeper of the Archives" as the office documents and preserves the history of our city's government.

The Office of the City Secretary is administratively responsible for the care of the City's records, maintaining the City Commission minutes, agendas, deeds, ordinances, resolutions, contracts, and a vast array of other historical and regulatory information.  This office is also responsible for keeping the agendas and minutes of other City Boards.

The City Secretary is designated as the City's Records Management Officer by both State and City ordinance.  The City Secretary is responsible for developing and administering a records retention and destruction policy as required by state law.
