The Clerk of Council does more than take minutes for Council and their Committees. The Charter of the City of Monroe requires that the Council, by a majority vote, appoint a Clerk of Council who shall serve at the pleasure of Council. The Clerk may be appointed to serve full-time or part-time and the Council may assign the duties of the Clerk of Council to any employees of the Municipality as an additional duty.

The Clerk shall give notice of Council meetings, keep the Journal, advertise public hearings, record in separate books all ordinances and resolutions enacted by Council and have the same published in the manner provided by this Charter. The Clerk shall perform such other duties as may be assigned to the Clerk by this Charter or by ordinance.  In the absence of the Clerk of Council, Council shall appoint a temporary clerk for the purpose of recording minutes of the meeting.

The City Clerk has direct signature authority and their signature is required on all Ordinances Resolutions, and other official documents of the City. The City Clerk's office is a citywide information and document resource, and is the official records management office for City Council.

I am proud to serve as Clerk of Council for the City of Monroe.  In addition to holding this position I also serve as Assistant to the City Manager, Secretary to the Personnel Board, and Secretary to the Records Commission.  I am responsible for Human Resources/Personnel Management/Employee Benefits, Public Information, City’s website, and social media.
