Clerk Treasurer

In a third class city, the Clerk-Treasurer’s term of office is for four years with no restrictions on the number of terms which can be served.  The ranking status of Clerk-Treasurer is on an equal level with the Council and Mayor.  The Clerk-Treasurer does not have authority to set wages and final approval of budgets. The office of the Clerk-Treasurer has evolved dramatically from a bookkeeper and secretary to a financial manager whose responsibilities impact the financial well-being of local government. Municipal Clerk-Treasurers are governed by Indiana Code 36-4-10.
