cityhallClinton citizens have the best of two worlds of government, the responsiveness of elected officials and the management skills of professional administrators. The city is governed by a Commission form of government. The council employs two administrative assistants in Zoning and Public Works to oversee the day to day operations of government and to carry out the mandates of the council.

Business and industry are welcome in Clinton and the city offers a variety of economic incentives to encourage expansion of existing business and industry and attract new companies to the community.
