The Clerk/Treasurer is subject to the direction and control of the mayor.  However, state law imposes numerous responsibilities upon the clerk, which the clerk has an independent responsibility to perform.  The treasurer serves as the chief fiscal officer of the village. 

Most of the village clerk’s duties are set forth in Village Law §4-402, which partially provides as follows:

  • Village Minutes
  • Oath of Office
  • Local Legislation
  • Order to Pay Claims
  • Transmitting Funds
  • Maintaining postings
  • Custody & Production of Books and Records
  • Filing, publishing notices relating to resolutions, local laws, public meetings, open meetings.
  • Serving as point of contact for citizens with questions about the village.
  • Acting as liaison between citizens and the village board of trustees.

Pursuant to Village Law§4-408, the treasurer is responsible for:

  • Accounting
  • Bank Deposits
  • Signing Checks
  • Payment
  • Annual Financial Statement

*In addition to the above outlined responsibilities as taken from the 2012 NYCOM Handbook for Village Officials, the village clerk/treasurer assists the board of trustees in the planning and preparation of the annual budget.
