Dixon City Council to ask staff to appoint interim city clerk – The Vacaville Reporter


In the 2020 general election, Dixon voters approved Measure T, an initiative to move the city clerk position from an appointed to an elected position.

However, since the California Government Code allows special elections to be held on Nov. 2 at the earliest, the city recommends that a clerk be appointed until the next election.

Dixon City Council will provide guidance to staff to promote and accept letters of intent from those interested in the acting position at its meeting on Tuesday.

According to a report from staff at City Attorney Doug White, Measure T will come into effect 10 days after council proclaims the general election results, followed by certification of the results by the Solano County Registrar of Electors. The county certified the results on Tuesday, and while the council has yet to vote to declare the results, it will likely do so at its December 15 meeting, allowing measure T to take effect on December 25.

“While awaiting the special election, city council must ensure that the duties of the city clerk are fulfilled,” White wrote. “To do this, the city council can appoint an interim city clerk until the special election.”

The city clerk’s duties include keeping accurate city records, acting as a city council clerk and performing additional duties required by federal, state or local laws, or as directed by council. To hold the position, a candidate must be 18 years of age or older and reside in Dixon.

The city is requesting that letters of intent outlining a person’s qualifications and interest in the position be submitted to City Manager Jim Lindley no later than 5 p.m. on December 14.

“The deadline ensures that city council has enough time to review letters of intent to determine whether an appointment should be made,” White wrote.

In other cases, the council will authorize the issuance of special tax bonds for the first community facilities district improvement area in the Homestead development and will consider a resolution formally setting limits on campaign contributions.

The council will meet on Tuesday at 7 p.m. The meeting can be accessed via Zoom at Us02web.zoom.us/j/9886211137?pwd=R2dxZ3RkbU9SQXdlUVllRkc0QlQwZz09 and by teleconference at 669-900-9128.
