As a service oriented division of your local government, the City Clerk’s office assists and supports the public and City departments by making available the records necessary for the City to advance its administrative, legal, and legislative function. The City Clerk’s office was created by Spokane Valley Municipal Code 2.20.010 and by RCW (Revised Code of Washington) 35A.13.090. It is the mission of the City Clerk’s Office to serve as a primary point of contact for the public and for staff regarding the actions of the City Council, and to maintain and produce documents that enable the public to participate in local government. We strive to fulfill this mission in an accurate, timely and courteous manner. (Read a history of the City Clerk profession here.)
The City Clerk is responsible for managing municipal records, coordinating the production of City Council agendas, providing public notification, and producing official meeting minutes. The Clerk also oversees the Business Registration functions, coordinates City elections, is the official Public Records Officer of the City, and serves as the agent to receive claims for damages against the City.
