City Clerk Sally Kilby, who is retiring after serving for thirteen years, said, â€œI want to let the citizens know that a wonderful opportunity is available for someone interestedÂ in civic life and in working with an outstanding team to improve the quality of life in South Pasadena: the position of City Clerk.â€
The functions of the City Clerkâ€™s Office have been divided, she said, with the day-to-day responsibility of the City Clerkâ€™s Office being managed by a professional withÂ qualifications in the field.
â€œHowever,â€ she said, â€œThere is a position for a resident to serve as a part-time, elected City Clerk. The position will be voted on by the voters at the November 5, 2013, General Municipal Election.â€ She said the person could assume various duties, depending on the background of the person who is elected and the current needs of the City.â€
The City Clerk could undertake voter education projects, reviewing/signing official City documents, preparing City Council meeting minutes, and representing the City at community events. The term is for four years, and the position is compensated by stipend ($300/month).
City Clerk Kilby is inviting any resident interested in the position to meet with her to review the functions of the City Clerkâ€™s Office.
In addition, a notebook is available in the City Clerkâ€™s Office in City Hall (1414 Mission Street) that contains all the forms and required documentation to file for the office. Her contact information is at (626) 403-7232, or email firstname.lastname@example.org .
The filing period is from July 15 to August 14, 2013.
