The Municipal Clerk is the oldest of public servants in local government, along with the tax collector.
The early keepers of archives were often called "Remembrancers" and before writing came into use, their memory served as the public record. Over the years, Municipal Clerks have become the hub of government, the direct link between the citizens and government.
The Columbia City Clerk attends all meetings of City Council and records official actions, attests and certifies to the accuracy of documents executed by Council and coordinates all general and special election activities.
The Office of the City Clerk is the point-of-contact for citizens wishing to serve on City boards and commissions by advertising vacancies and receiving and processing all applications.
This office is also responsible for ensuring that City Council, City staff and interested citizens are aware of matters by preparing and publishing agendas and approved minutes.
