The City Clerk is one of four statutory officers under Nebraska law, and is appointed by the Mayor with approval of a majority of the City Council. The office maintains official documents, city records, and maintains minutes of the Council. The City Clerk performs all other duties to meet the requirements imposed upon the office, and performs many administrative duties set by general law, City Code or other ordinance, including the following:
- Issue licenses and permits (fireworks, waste hauler, mobile home, solicitor, liquor, tobacco, pawnbroker, street vendor/mobile food vendor, occupancy)
- Provide support to the Mayor, City Council and City Administration
- Administer oaths to public servants
- Administer special assessments
The goal of the City Clerk’s Office is to serve our community by practicing and promoting the Mission, Vision and Values of the City of Fremont.
