The City Clerk’s Office is often the first point of contact at City Hall, and our goal is to make City government transparent and easy for the public to navigate.

The Clerk’s official duties include administration of:

  • City Council meetings and legislation
  • Boards, Committees, and Commissions
  • Elections and campaign reporting
  • Public records and records management

Bonnie Gawf, CMC, is the City of Monterey’s City Clerk and Director of Information Resources.  While she serves as the Interim Assistant City Manager, Clementine Bonner Klein, CMC is the Acting City Clerk.
