City Clerk

The Office of the City Clerk is multi-functioned. Unlike any other department, it interacts daily with the City Council, City Manager, all Administrative Departments, other agencies and the public.

State law governs most of the duties of this department, which include, but are not limited to, maintenance of all permanent records of the City such as Council actions, ordinances, resolutions, contracts/agreements, deeds and easements.

The City Clerk prepares the agendas, conducts bid openings, prepares proclamations, legal notices, is custodian of the City Seal, receives all claims and filings on behalf of the City, and is generally the main source of information for staff and public alike. The City Clerk also serves as the Election Official, and further serves as the local Filing Official for the Fair Political Practices Commission.

  • How do I address the Council about an item on the agenda?
    Before the Council meeting, complete a speaker card and return it to the City Clerk. The speaker cards are kept with the official record of the City Council meeting and are used if the City Council or staff needs to contact you at a later date.

    Every City Council agenda provides time for a Public Comment period. This is your opportunity to address the Council on any subject matter that is within the jurisdiction of the City Council, and that does not appear as a regular agenda item. The City Council is not permitted (by law) to take any action on issues raised during the Public Comment period, but they may refer matters to the staff for response or official action at a future date.
  • How can I obtain a copy of a City Ordinance?
    All city ordinances are contained in the Municipal Code. The San Jacinto Municipal Code is available online at: http://www.codepublishing.com/ca/sanjacinto.html.
    The online document is fully indexed and searchable.
