Clerk's Office

The Municipal Clerk's Office is the "Doorway to Local Government".  The Municipal Clerk is one of the oldest public servants in local government.  Over the years, Municipal Clerks have become the hub of government, the direct link between the residents of their community and their government.  The Clerk is the historian of the community, for the entire recorded history of the Borough and its people are in his or her care.  The Manville Borough Clerk's Office looks forward to serving the residents and citizens of our community.
