Clerk Chatter


Time and Money. These are the two commodities we speak of most in our interactions at City Hall. Our staff discusses how long a project or task may take and how long a durable item will last. We are always looking for ways to make something more efficient, meaning how can we do the things we need to do with less time, allowing us to move on to the next item faster. We look at what equipment and procedures might help us to do that, and ask if the cost of equipment or setting up a new procedure going to be cost effective.

There are some things citizens can do so the City can run more efficiently. Simple items like paying the sewer and water utilities in a timely fashion, securing a building permit before doing a project, or shoveling the sidewalk in front of your residence/business after a snowfall will save time for City staff, and ultimately money for the City.
