Creator Sketch

The Austin City Council formally authorized The Office of City Clerk (OCC) on June 23, 1876. The City Clerk is traditionally associated with municipal elections and supporting the City Council by recording and preparing Council meeting minutes and registering citizen speakers, but also serves additional functions for the City of Austin. The OCC is the official depository of official records including ordinances, resolutions, deeds, easements, liens, bonds, contracts with the city, and records of the City Council. It retains and distributes official Council documents, prepares citizen recognitions, registers lobbyists, provides the city approval portion of the State Alcoholic Beverage Permit process, and coordinates appointments to City boards and commissions. The OCC manages documents for all City Departments, consulting and training City departments on records management systems, policies, standards, and guidelines as well as inventorying, transferring, storing, retrieving, and retaining records from City departments according to State law.

Office of the City Clerk Series, 1862-1993

Although the Austin City Clerk (1860-1998) contains a large number of records, these records represent selected materials from various city offices and projects and do not represent the total number of City Clerk records for this time period. In addition to these gaps in the records, the City Clerk's office used different organizational methods for records pertaining to a city office or a city project. For example, records from the City Council office are found within the City Council series or within a city project such as the Bergstrom Air Force Base or the Robert Mueller Airport subseries. As the original order of these records reflects the intent of the City Clerk office and provides a consistent arrangement for the city project records, this order is largely preserved in the current arrangement. As a result, records emanating from a city office may be found among several different series or subseries. The Austin City Clerk contains the majority of materials in the Austin City Clerk collection.
