The Town Clerk is the Council’s principal executive and adviser and, for many smaller parish councils, is the officer responsible for the administration of its financial affairs. The Clerk is not answerable to any individual councillor – not even the Chairman. She is an independent and unbiased employee of the Council, recognising that the Council is responsible for all decisions and taking instruction from the Council as a body. The Clerk is the line manager to other members of staff.
As the Council’s proper officer, the Clerk is responsible for implementing Council policy; ensuring the Council acts within the law; advising the Council on all aspects of its work and may have delegated powers of decision making especially in urgent situations. It is the Clerk who prepares and posts notices, is responsible for writing the agenda and minutes, keeps the Council’s records, deals with correspondence, arranges the Council’s insurance and issues the Precept.
