The Administration Office for the City of Utica consists of the City Clerk's Office,
the Treasurer's Office, the Assessor's Office and the Building Department. We
call them offices but in reality it is really a 6-ft. square cubicle with a lot of energy.
The City Clerk's office is a small but hard working office. Three employees are assigned to the City Clerk's supervision. The duties handled by
these four people are: City Council meetings preparations and minutes, public
notices for City Council meetings and the publication of the minutes from the meetings, the ordinances, the roster preparations for all city employees and commission volunteers, all insurance benefits and payments for the employees,
as well as the pension payments, all payroll records and preparation of paychecks, W-2's, various local licenses. We also take in all complaints and process them to the proper department.
Our office handles all elections and related election matters,
including the absentee voter applications and absentee ballots.
Water bills and accounts receivables are issued and recorded by our office.
We also work behind the scenes for the Art's & Craft
Fair and other fundraiser events for the
Parks and Recreation Commission.
Basically, if you have a question or a problem, you can call us
and we will try to help.
The Administration Office also includes the Treasurer/Finance Director. Who is responsible for all the treasury related items, such as taxes - both sending and collecting, banking
related duties, payment of bills for all departments of the City and all
aspects of the city's finances.
We have two part-time officials in the Administration Office: the Assessor
and the Building Inspector. The Assessor is the person who must follow the state
law and prepare the assessment for every piece of land in the City.
It is from these assessments that the tax bills are calculated. The Board
of Review is convened annually for property owners to discuss their assessment
and the resident's need for a change.
The Building Inspector is the person who approves all building permit applications and follows up with the required inspections, answers questions regarding the Zoning Ordinance and building requirements. The Building
Inspector not only issues the building permits but he also is the
code enforcement official and issues citations when the ordinances or
codes are not followed.
