I am honored to be elected the first Fishers City Clerk in 2015. With this being a newly elected position, I had to develop procedures for all aspects of the city clerk’s day to day responsibilities. I had to be organized, a multi-tasker and a leader. My office is transparent, and I believe that my office and staff provide a positive customer service experience.
The city clerk does not have any decision-making authority for the City of Fishers. The clerk’s office provides clerical services to the City Council, Board of Public Works and Safety, Finance Committee and the City Court. The clerk works with the city’s department directors and the city attorney to insure agendas for meetings are accurate and accessible to the public.
The clerk’s office is responsible agendas, minutes, ordinances, resolutions, public information requests, recording documents, codification and retention of records according to state statute.
- Scanned and uploaded minutes in old minute books as far back as mid 1800’s to 2011.
- The old books needed to be copied per page then scanned and merged together.
- Scanned and uploaded all ordinance resolutions from the early 1900’s to 2011. (Documents 2011 and beyond were already electronic)
- Scanned all paper contracts available and uploaded them
- Developed with the city attorney how public information requests would be processed and stored in the city database.
All of the points above were accomplished in just the first 18 months in office.
