Clerk of Council

Khristi Dunn has served as Clerk of Council since 2020. Her responsibilities as Clerk include preparing legislation for Council meetings, giving notice of all Council meetings, keeping records of all Council proceeding, and updating the City's Codified Ordinances.

The City of Franklin became a Charter Municipality in 1984, when the residents of Franklin voted in the Charter of the City of Franklin, Ohio. The Charter allows the City the advantages of self-government - also called home rule - conferred by the Ohio Constitution. The Charter establishes the City’s form of government; the corporate powers of the City; rules governing election to Council and Council procedures; and the rules for initiative petitions, referendum and recall. The Charter also establishes the powers of the City Manager, and creates the City’s various Departments, Boards, and Commissions.
