  • § 237-8. Clerk

    The Clerk shall keep fair and accurate record of all called Village meetings, meetings of the Village trustees, and other proceedings of the Village, and he or she shall give copies thereof when requested. He or she shall have exclusive custody of the Village records and papers, which shall not be taken from his or her office unless upon the order or process of a court of competent jurisdiction, and his or her records, copies, and certificates shall be as legally authoritative as those of town clerks, and he or she shall have power to certify the same. It shall be the Clerk's duty to warn special Village meetings agreeably to the directions of the trustees or a majority of them, and all annual Village meetings by posting notices of the time and place of said meetings in four public places at least 10 days previous to said meetings together with a statement of the business to be transacted therein. Any meeting of said Village may be adjourned, and any business may be transacted at said adjourned meeting which might under the warning have been transacted at the original meeting. The ordinances and regulations of said Village shall be recorded in the office of the Clerk of said Village, and the Clerk's certificate that such ordinances and regulations of said Village were adopted at a meeting of the trustees called and held for that purpose shall be prima facie evidence of such fact in any court in this State, and certified copies of said bylaws, ordinances, and regulations and Clerk's certificates shall also be received as evidence in all courts in this State. The Clerk of said Village shall perform the usual duties of a clerk, and he or she shall have the same powers and be subject to the same liabilities as are prescribed by the general laws for town clerks.
