City Clerk

The City Clerk is elected by the voters of Wheat Ridge every four years. The mission of the City Clerk's Department is to provide and facilitate exemplary service to every citizen of the City of Wheat Ridge.

"No other office in municipal service has so many contacts. It serves the mayor, the city council, the city manager, and all administrative departments without exception. All of them call upon it, almost daily, for some service or information. Its work is not spectacular, but it demands versatility, alertness, accuracy, and no end of patience. The public does not realize how many loose ends of city administration this office pulls together." ~ William Bennitt Munro, eminent political scientist.
