Hi, welcome to the Clerks Corner! My name is Bobi Morris and I was appointed as the city clerk on July 2, 2001 and became the court clerk on October 15, 2003. I moved to Scranton in 1972 and still reside here.

The vision for the "clerks corner” of this site is to produce a user friendly, informational page(s) for the citizens and customers of Scranton. It is my desire to be able to provide the public with useful information as quickly as possible. The long term goal is to make customer accounts available and payable online.

We look forward to serving you on the web!
