Duties of the County Clerk
The third Constitution of the Commonwealth of Kentucky in 1850
established the position of the County Clerk. The County Clerk
answers to the Kentucky Constitution, and all the Kentucky Revised
Statutes and Administrative Regulations. Duties assigned to this
position are varied and provides the link for the business world to
operate, while protecting their interest.
The Kentucky Courts, lending institutions, governmental agencies,
automobile dealers, real estate agents, and mineral leasing
agencies use our offices. We also operate the tax payer's bank.
Collection of taxes, not only for the Commonwealth and the County,
also for all the taxing entities that provide invaluable services to
our communities, are collected in our offices.
The most vital role of the County Clerk's office is to maintain
the legal depository for all County records. Filing of deeds,
mortgages, leases, list pendings, wills, notary commissions, and
many more records that are beneficial to our society. County Clerks
are responsible for all vehicle applications for titles and all
boats, and we also handle the registrations for all the vehicles
within Metcalfe County.
We maintain a close relationship with the Executive branch of the
State Government. As laws are passed, we must all work together to
meet the needs of our constituents. County Clerk offices are
divided into four major branches: elections, vehicles, tax
collections, and land records.
