Nevada City, CA
City Clerk
The duties of City Clerk are primarily those set forth in California Government Code sections 40801-40814. Section 40801 requires the Clerk to keep an accurate record of the City Council's proceedings. Nevada County acts as the tax assessor and collector for the City and the responsibility of collecting business licenses and other City assessments have been assigned to a City employee; thus, the City Clerk has no responsibilities under section 40810. While the City Clerk is the official custodian of the city seal under section 40811, the seal is to remain at City Hall. In addition to those duties set forth in the Government Code, the City Clerk is also the elections official for the City. Because the City consolidates its elections with the County, the primary election duties of the City Clerk include handling nomination papers and receiving candidate's statements.
