What's a County Clerk?
Historically the County Clerk’s office was the official clerk of the courts. After the creation of the unified court system in 1978, the clerk no longer functioned in a judicial manner. The clerk did however keep its responsibilities as the “keeper of the records”. As the keeper of the records, the Clerk’s office is bursting at the seams with history.
With two offices, one in the historic Independence Courthouse and the other located at the County Building in Covington, you can find your own history which includes marriage licenses, wills, deeds, mortgages and probate records. The County Clerk currently serves as the Chairman of the County Board of Elections and the Secretary to the County Board of Assessment Appeals.
Most people think that the Clerk’s office only takes care of Elections, Cars and Real Estate but there is a wide range of responsibilities. These responsibilities include Notary Public, Franchise Taxes, Motor Vehicle renewals, Marriage License, Business License and Delinquent Property Taxes.
