City Clerk


The City Clerk’s office makes every effort to present a courteous, service-oriented team of professionals who provide quality administrative support to the City’s elected officials and staff, and to serve the public by providing a liaison between the community and government through the dissemination of information. The City Clerk is appointed by and serves at the pleasure of the Mayor and City Council.  

The City Clerk's Office maintains all official records of the City of Ketchikan, covering areas including, but not limited to City-owned property, cemetery records, ordinances, resolutions, and minutes. While not all of these records are available online, the City Clerk's Office is more than happy to assist in the research of any records administered by the office.  

Oftentimes, the City Clerk's Office is mistaken for the State of Alaska Clerk of the Court. If you have a court fine, want a copy of marriage, death or birth certificate, or need to contact someone regarding jury duty, call the Clerk of the Court at 907-225-3195.
