City Clerk / Assistant City Manager
In June, 2009, the City Council re-established the position of a stand-alone City Clerk. Pursuant to Ordinance No. 1195, the City Clerk position is appointed by the City Manager.
The City Clerk serves as the Clerk to the City Council, maintaining the official records of the City of Sausalito, and providing information and services to the public. As such, the Clerk is the historian for the City, keeping all minutes, ordinances and resolutions, along with any other official actions taken by the Council.
The City Clerk also conducts the municipal elections for the City. Information about past and future elections can be found within this website.
City Clerks also act as the filing officer for the state mandated Statement of Economic Interest Forms (Form 700). Every January 1, certain positions are required to file their Statement of Economic Interest. Specifically, the members of the City Council and Planning Commission must file their Form 700 with the City Clerk, and the City Clerk then forwards the information to the Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC). Copies of the following 2015 Statements may be obtained through the office of the Fair Political Practices Commisson (428 J Street, Suite 620, Sacramento, CA 95814), or the Sausalito City Clerk (420 Litho Street, Sausalito, CA 94965):
