The City of Clio is located in northern Genesee County along the I-75 corridor approximately ten miles north of Flint. The City is 1.1 square miles and surrounded physically by Vienna Charter Township. Clio has a population of approximately 2,700 and serves as the hub of a tri-inter-governmental area (Vienna and Thetford Townships and the City of Clio) that is nearly ten times its individual population. Primarily a residential community, Clio boasts a diverse commercial and industrial base, too.
The City of Clio is a home rule city, having adopted its current charter in 1961. The City operates under the council-mayor form of government. The mayor is the chief executive officer of city government and is supported by the city administrator, who handles day-to-day administrative duties. A seven-member commission, of which the mayor is a member, constitutes the city's governing body.
A full-service city, Clio provides public safety (police, fire, and EMS), public works (water, sewer, road repairs, and snow and ice control), park and recreation facilities (pavilions, park land, and 5+ miles of bike paths. Unique to a community of its size, is Clio's art center, amphitheater, and industrial park--each developed through a community partnership anchored by city government participation.
