Office of the City Clerk

The City Clerk provides quality public service to connect you with your local government, with the  transparency to ensure Stockton’s legislative processes are open and available to the public.  The Office of the City Clerk acts as a partner in the democratic process by managing the City's official records, providing open access to this information, and serving as the community's public information resource to the Council.

The City Clerk's team assists with:

  • public records requests,
  • official city publications, records, and municipal codes.
  • bid openings, 
  • claims for damages,
  • local elections,
  • FPPC campaign forms, and
  • Board and Commission recruitment.

For your convenience, we provide agendas, minutes, and meeting recordings on our online meetings archive.
