Continuation of city clerk in office where subject to civil service or merit system; appointment where not subject to such system; duties of city clerk.

If the city clerk of any city which adopts the mayor/commission/city manager form of government holds office subject to any civil service or merit system, such clerk shall continue to be the city clerk under the mayor/commission/city manager form of government of such city, and the clerk's successor shall be selected and hold office subject to the provisions of such civil service or merit system. If the city clerk of any city which adopts the mayor/commission/city manager form of government does not hold office subject to any civil service or merit system, the city manager may appoint the city clerk in the same manner as department heads are appointed. The city clerk shall give notice of special or called meetings of the commission, shall keep the journal of its proceedings, shall authenticate by his (her) signature and record in full, in a book kept for that purpose, all ordinances and resolutions and shall perform such other duties as shall be required by this chapter or by ordinance, and such duties as are imposed by law of Alabama upon city clerks.
