Town Clerk's Office

The Town Clerk

The Town Clerk’s Office serves as a direct link between residents of the community and their local government. The Town Clerk serves as the custodian of the Town’s records and the smooth functionality of the various Boards and Committees of the Town. Although it is one of the oldest positions in local government, few people realize the vital services Municipal and Deputy Clerks perform for their community. Primarily, they act as a cornerstone of their Governing Body. 

Duties Include:

  • Organizing meetings of the Hope Mills Board of Commissioners
  • Acting as a key liaison between local government and its residents
  • Serving as the official custodian of the Town records (keeper of community history and permanent records)
  • Maintaining the official Board minutes, ordinance books, records and documents
  • Responding to request for records from residents, businesses, media and other agencies
  • Keeping up with new technologies and methods of record-keeping
  • Continuing education so that residents receive the most knowledgeable service possible.
