"The title 'clerk' as employed in municipal charters, ordinances, and statutes, usually refers to those persons whose duties are principally clerical, as compared to those of an administrative or executive character" - Municicpal Corporations, 3rd Edition, Section 12.34. In the October 1949 issue of the newsletter of the National Institute of Municipal Clerks: "The Clerk's office can be truly called the hub of local government. It is the Clerk who is the contact between the citizens and the government. It is he or she to whom most complaints are brought. He or she gives advice on many subjects, not necessarily relating to the government, but by his or her contact with the public, they for a great part, place confidence in him or her [to] answer most any question."
The city treasurer is responsible for maintaining the financial records of the city. Specifically, the treasurer's duties are being responsible for accounts payable, establishing and maintaining a variety of payroll and personnel records, completing related reports, and providing general clerical support as required. The city treasurer works with the city clerk, city department heads, and other city employees.
