The Village Clerk is subject to the direction and control of the Mayor. However, state law imposes numerous responsibilities upon the clerk, which the clerk has an independent responsibility to perform.
Most of the village clerk’s duties are set forth in Village Law §4-402, which partially provides as follows:
Oath of Office
Order to Pay Claims
Custody & Production of Books and Records
Filing, publishing notices relating to resolutions, local laws, public meetings, open meetings.
Serving as point of contact for citizens with questions about the village.
Acting as liaison between citizens and the village board of trustees
