In accordance with both the Nevada Revised Statutes and the City of Reno Charter, the City Clerk is responsible for the administration of regular and special municipal elections, codification of ordinances, as well as public records access. Municipal elections are held in conjunction with the statewide general elections, under contract with Washoe County; 1996 was the first year of this combined election process.

Per City Charter, the City Clerk's Office is responsible for the collection and deposit of all City of Reno revenues. The bulk of these monies are retrieved through the mail; however, we have over-the-counter transactions for a wide variety of payments. Additionally, the City Clerk's Office is responsible for the administration of the parking ticket collection program. This includes the billing process, revenue collection and the appeals process, which incorporates an Appeals Hearing Officer who works under contract. This unit also issues residential and employee parking permits.
