City Clerk's Office back

Welcome to the Office of the City Clerk

NEW 5/23/16
The City Clerk's Office can now accept credit and debit cards for payments made in our office to the City! For payments to the U.S. Dept. of State for passport applications, we still require a check or money order because the payment is mailed out with the passport applications. We are glad to be able to provide this service to the public. Questions, give us a call at 517-483-4131 or email city.clerk@lansingmi.gov
