Pursuant to provisions of the Florida Constitutions, which have governed the people for over 150 years, the role of the Clerk of Courts has been established in three main areas:

  • Clerk of the Circuit and County Courts
  • Clerk to the Board of County Commissioners, including serving as accountant, auditor, and custodian of county funds.
  • County Recorder

Within these areas, the Clerk of Court performs a "checks and balances" for local government as an elected public trustee.
