This office is the custodian of city records, which include City Council meeting records (i.e., communications, resolutions, ordinances, meeting minutes, contracts, petitions), warranty deeds and insurance policies on city property, Electrical, Plumbing and Contractor Bonds. The Clerk’s office files petitions from candidates for Mayor, City Attorney, City Clerk, City Treasurer, Alderman and Municipal Judge. Petitions requesting speed humps are also filed with the clerk who forwards a copy to the council members and the Traffic Services Director. Records in this office date back to our first city ordinance that was passed in 1903. As keeper of the records, we also read through daily periodicals and maintain information pertaining to North Little Rock.
The Clerk’s Office files the legislation for the City Council meetings and prepares the agenda and other related documentation.
The City Clerk maintains the records for all city boards, commissions and committees. A copy of the minutes from the meetings of these boards, commissions and committees are required by ordinance to be filed in the clerk’s office. Personal information forms for new members are provided by the clerk.
The City Clerk and Collector’s Office is accountable more than $125,000,000 annually. Most of the funds are deposited through individual departments. The clerk’s office then prepares a daily report, which verifies deposit transactions for those departments. A monthly report is prepared at the close of each month.
Our office collects payments for Privilege License, Restaurant and Hotel/Motel tax, Beer and Liquor taxes, fees collected for animal adoption, and traffic and criminal court fines, and Community Development payments and other miscellaneous revenue. Drainage Escrow funds which pay for sidewalks, curbs and gutters, are collected and held until development is completed in the affected area.
This office works closely with the North Little Rock Revenue Office, which mails Privilege License Statements at the end of December for the upcoming year. Business owners have until March 31 to renew their license without penalty. A second notice is mailed if necessary during the second week of March. Licenses postmarked or received after March 31are considered delinquent and assessed a late fee, which is 25 percent of the total amount due. The North Little Rock Police and Code Enforcement Departments handle the massive task of verifying that businesses operating within the city have a current license. Business Licenses are to be posted in an area easily viewed by the public.
The hotel, restaurant and mixed drink taxes are due in the office by the 20th day of each month. A 10 percent penalty is assessed on late payments. As you can see, North Little Rock City Departments work together to provide the best service available to our community. Our office works close with the Mayor’s Staff, City Attorney, Finance Department, Police and Fire Department, Animal Control, and more.
