Town Manager The Town manager is responsible for day-to-day administrative operations of the town based on the council’s recommendations. The manager serves as the council’s chief advisor. Managers also serve at the pleasure of the council and are responsible for preparing the budget and directing day-to-day operations.
Town Clerk "Clerk" is one of the longest-standing public service positions in the history of local government. The position of municipal clerk, in one form or another, took form before the advent of writing. Over the course of history, clerks have been known by such titles as scribes, reminders, remembrancers, clerks, "mayors of the palace”, and “clarkes”. By nature, members of the Office of the Town Clerk love to help and the office operates on that core premise. Clerks’ office is a communication link between our Town Councils, Town Manager, Town departments, and the public. To contact the Clerks office call (928) 875-2646 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
