MISSION STATEMENT FROM THE CLERK’S OFFICE
Have fun at what you do. It will be reflected in your work. No one likes a grump except another grump! We all spend plenty of hours at work. It is much more pleasant to spend those hours with people who have a bounce in their step and a smile on their face than with those who mistakenly associate professionalism with a dour disposition. The best managers give of themselves by having fun at what they do. Research shows that when people are in a good mood at work, it builds emotional capital and enhances productivity. The art of leadership is getting work done well through other people, and laughing together is one of the best ways to do that.
Our promise to you from the City Clerk’s office is that you will always be treated in a courteous and friendly manner.
You are our customer and it is our job to serve you.
