The office of the City Clerk serves as the keeper of the City Seal and all records adopted by the Mayor and Board of City Commissioners (minutes, ordinances and resolutions) and management of the official Code of Ordinances. Mandated by state law, the office of the City Clerk maintains Elected Officials campaign filings including campaign contribution forms, financial disclosure forms, etc., (for the Mayor and Board of Commissioners, including those seeking re-election and/or new elections). Additionally, the City Clerk assists with agenda preparation, maintains all City appointed boards, provides administrative support, including travel, and maintaining financial reports of the Mayor and Board of City Commissioners. In 2005, a records management program was established to digitize all official permanent documents of the City of Albany. As a result of this project, an Archive Building was built with SPLOST funds to house older documents in a controlled environment to preserve the records.
The Clerk and Asst. City Clerk are members of the Georgia Municipal Clerk’s association, International Institute of Municipal Clerks and the Georgia Municipal Association.
Citizens are encouraged to share their concerns and ideas with the Mayor and Board of Commissioners. To address the Commission during a work session or business meeting, complete a Speaker's Appearance Form.
