The Office of the Municipal Clerk
"Your Doorway to Local Government"

The office of the Municipal Clerk is historical in its traditions, serving as a direct link between residents and their local government since Biblical times. The early keepers of archives were often called "rememberers" and before writing came into use, their memory served as the public record.

NJ Statutes define the Municipal Clerk's responsibilities as:

  • Secretary to the Governing Body
  • Secretary to the Municipal Corporation
  • Administrative and Licensing Officer
  • Election Administrator and Registrar of Voters
  • Custodian of Records
However, these core duties reflect just a portion of the many responsibilities and activities of the Municipal Clerk's Office.

Montclair Paid Sick Time Ordinance Goes into Effect March 4 PDF Print E-mail

Tuesday, March 3, 2015

Montclair Deputy Mayor Bob RussoMontclair’s Paid Sick Time ordinance goes into effect on Wednesday, March 4. The ordinance, which passed by a nearly 3-to-1 margin as a referendum question on last November’s ballot, will provide employees working in the Township up to 40 hours of paid sick time.

Under Montclair’s Paid Sick Time law (also known as Earned Sick Days) employees who work for at least 80 hours in a calendar year in the Township must be provided with paid sick time by their employers. The law excludes from this requirement individuals employed by the city, state, or federal government; individuals employed by any New Jersey school district or Board of Education; and a limited number of union members.

“The implementation of guaranteed paid sick leave means catching the flu or child coming down sick won't result in losing a job or lost wages,” said Montclair Deputy Mayor Bob Russo. “Montclair was at the vanguard on this issue because residents recognize that paid sick leave benefits employees, employers and the economy as a whole.”
