The Office of the Municipal Clerk has many statutory duties, which include acting as secretary to the governing body, chief administrative officer for all local elections, registrar of voters and the custodian of records. The Office of the Clerk also facilitates the issuance of various licenses and permits.

Acting as Secretary to the Governing body, the Office of the Municipal Clerk maintains all records with regard to the Borough’s local ordinances, resolutions, and public proceedings. The Municipal Clerk prepares the agendas for all commission meetings and officially records the minutes for those meetings; processes, records and files ordinances and resolutions and other official documents.
