Welcome to the City Clerk's Office
The City Clerk Department is the primary link between City Council, City staff, and the public, serving as the elections official, legislative administrator, and records manager for the City.
The City Clerk's Office preserves legal documents and is the source of information on City Council legislation and actions. The Clerk is the historian of the community, for the entire recorded history of the City and its people is in her care. Along with the tax collector, municipal clerks are the oldest public servants in local governments.
Clerks, by necessity, must be on top of changing laws and new laws to ensure that their organizations and employees stay in compliance with the laws. The City Clerk's Office will provide clear, accurate information and assistance to its patrons with respect and integrity.
Regular City Council Meetings are held on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. at Tolleson City Hall located at 9555 West Van Buren Street.
All public notices of meetings held by the Tolleson City Council will be posted at the outdoor bulletin board of Tolleson City Hall at 9555 West Van Buren Street, as well as online at www.tollesonaz.org. Additional public notice will be given as is reasonable and practicable as to all meetings.

|Campaign Sign Regulations||
State law requires utilities to be marked before signs go up. If you're running for office, supporting a political candidate or working against a ballot measure, you must "know what's below" before campaign signs go up. Arizona law requires all underground utilities to be located and marked before any type of “excavation” – this includes the installation of campaign signs on public or private property. Contact Arizona 811 (formerly Arizona Blue Stake) at least two working days before installing signs in the ground:
Call 811 from anywhere in Arizona between 6 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday-Friday (excluding state holidays).
Installing any type of sign without having utilities marked in advance is a violation of A.R.S. 40-360.21-32, punishable by fines of up to $5,000 per violation. It’s also dangerous. Knowing the location of buried lines, pipes and cables – and then carefully working around them – prevents serious injuries and protects the utilities we all rely on from damage.
