In New Jersey, the Clerk occupies one of the most important and exacting positions in municipal government. In many instances, it is the hub of municipal operations. The Clerk, by virtue of his or her position, serves as a liaison officer between the governing officials and the taxpayers and between the executive and the general body of municipal personnel. The Municipal Clerk is an important public relations figure in municipal personnel.

The Core Duties of the Municipal Clerk include:

  1. Acting as secretary to the municipal corporation and custodian of the municipal seal and of all minutes, books, deeds, bonds and contracts of the municipal corporation. The governing body may, however, provide by ordinance that any other specific officer shall have custody of any specific other class or records.
  2. Acting as secretary to the governing body, preparing meeting agendas at the discretion of the governing body, being present at all meetings of the governing body, keeping a journal of the proceedings of every meeting, retaining the original copies of all ordinances and resolutions, and recording the minutes of every meeting.
  3. Serving as the chief administrative official in all elections held in the municipality, subject to the requirements of Title 19 of the Revised Statues.
  4. Serving as the chief registrar of voters in the municipality, subject to the requirements of Title 19 of the Revised Statues.
  5. Performing such other duties as are now or hereafter imposed by Statute, regulation or by municipal ordinance or regulation.

There are many responsibilities involved in working as the Township Committee's Secretary. Before each meeting an Agenda is prepared. After each meeting various letters are typed and advertisements made. Minutes must then be prepared. Resolutions are done for almost every meeting, and various originals need to be made.

The Municipal Clerk's Office is always willing to develop public good will and inform the public. In my busy schedule I will always direct your inquiry to the appropriate department and/or help in any way I can with your needs.
