The county clerk has many important functions within the county government. The county clerk serves as clerk of the county legislative body, keeps the records of the county legislative body, and sends required notices. The minutes of the county legislative body meetings are required to be promptly and fully recorded by the county clerk and are open to the public.
The county clerk issues business licenses, handles motor vehicle titling and registration. Also, the county clerk issues marriage licenses, collects the state and county privilege tax on marriages, and may also solemnize a marriage. Since notaries public are elected by the county legislative body, the county clerk keeps a record of notaries public in the county and has duties involving coordination between the Secretary of State and the notary applications. County clerks have other miscellaneous licensing duties, including pawnbroker license, beer permits, hunting and fishing license and others.
