What is a County Clerk?
The County Clerk’s office serves as the secretary for all Oklahoma County meetings. This responsibility includes facilitating the technology for the meetings and recording the meeting minutes. However, the County Clerk has many other duties and responsibilities:
Oklahoma County Budget Board
The County Clerk also sits on the Oklahoma County Budget Board, as one of eight members. The Oklahoma County Budget Board votes on budgeting recommendations, which then move on to the Board of County Commissioners to accept or reject.
Decisions made by the Budget Board impact issues that are deeply important to Oklahoma County residents. These include the new jail, how to spend federal funds, and how to mitigate the housing crises in our cities.
Making and Receiving Payments
This includes a number of different transactions:
- Oklahoma County’s monthly payroll
- Oklahoma County retiree disbursements
- Paying all vendors who supply materials for OK County employees
Open Meetings Act Compliance
For local government entities and boards to comply with the Open Meetings Act, they are required to file notices of their regularly scheduled meetings with the County Clerk.
Registrar of Deeds
The County Clerk is the ex-officio Registrar of Deeds and is charged with the duties and functions of this office, which include maintaining:
- A record of all military discharges
- All city charters
- Powers of attorney
- Trust agreements
- Final decrees
- Divorce decrees (when real estate is involved)
- An accurate and up to the minute record on every piece of property
Processing and Maintaining Uniform Commercial Code UCC Filings
These filings are made by creditors and involve the sales of personal property and various other transactions. Buying a business or a vehicle generally ends up with UCC paperwork getting filed at the County Clerk.
