City Clerks

WHAT’s New In the City Clerks Department:

We're continuing to work with other City Clerks in South Dakota and region directors on organizing a Municipal Clerk Association for South Dakota.  We are also continuing our work on completing the City Council videos that are found within the webpage and adding the very convenient timestamps which will enable you to skip directly to a specific topic during the meeting.  We're currently working the meetings from 2020 and once those are complete, we will begin 2018 and work backwards through the years.  Additionally, the meetings are now categorized by year.
