HISTORY OF THE MUNICIPAL CLERK

    Over the years, Municipal Clerks have become the hub of government, the direct link between the inhabitants of their community and their government.  The clerk is the historian of the community, for the entire recorded history of the town (city) and its people in his or her care.

    The eminent political scientist, Professor William Bennett Munro, writing in one of the first textbooks on municipal administration (1934), stated:

“No other office in the municipal service has so many contracts.  It serves the mayor, the city council, the city manager (when there is one), and all administrative departments without exception.  All of them call upon it, almost daily, for some service or information.  Its work is not spectacular, but it demands versatility, alertness, accuracy, and no end of patience.  The public does not realize how many loose ends of city administration this office pulls together.”

    These words, written more than 50 years ago, are even more appropriate today.
