Construction of a greenway tunnel has closed a section of O’Neil Street and the Sam’s Branch Trailhead and parking area for EIGHT weeks through August 9th.

Town Council Approves Clayton's 2021 Budget
With the backdrop of a health pandemic and economic crisis, the 2021 Town Budget continues to provide our current services and does not include a lot of new and expansion items. There is no tax rate increase and no increase in electric or garbage rates. There is a 9.4% increase in water/sewer rates, which will mean about $7.08 more each month for the typical Clayton household. Click to read more about the critical need for that increase in the Town Manager's budget message.

Town Leaders Stand with the Community Against Racism
In just one week, Clayton had shifted from one crippling crisis to another. And once again, in the face of crisis, the Clayton community came together. Our Mayor, Town Council, Police Chief, Fire Chief and all other Town leaders want Clayton to know...we stand with this community against racism and police brutality and we denounce those involved in the death of 46-year-old Minneapolis father George Floyd. Several peacful events were hosted in Downtown Clayton on Saturday, all aimed at bringing unity, all organized by Clayton youth. We can't say enough thanks to the organizers, who worked hand-in-hand with the Town and Clayton Police.
