Proudly Serving Miller County

The County Clerk is an elected official in county government. As Clerk of the County Court, the Clerk maintains the County Court Records. These records include all business of the County Court such as annexations, incorporations, county purchases, election results, proclamations, levy of taxes, bonds, levee/improvement districts, right of way acquisitions, contracts, and agreements signed by the County Judge.

The County Clerk also serves as the secretariat of the Quorum Court. These duties involve keeping complete permanent records of the proceedings for the Quorum Court including minutes, ordinances, resolutions, and recordings to provide easy access to the information (ACA 14-14-309).

The Clerk became the official Voter Registrar with the adoption of Amendment 51 to the Arkansas Constitution in 1966. The Clerk maintains an accurate and up-to-date voter registration list within her office.

The County Clerk or the Clerk’s designee serves as the secretary of the Board of Equalization and records the minutes of their meetings (ACA 26-27-307).

The County Clerk is responsible for accounts payable. The Clerk ensures that all county invoices are paid in a timely manner. The County Clerk also maintains employees records and processes payroll for the county bi-weekly.

The County Clerk is the official record keeper of county government. The records which are kept by the County Clerk are vital to the efficient and effective operation of Miller County. Thus, it is necessary that these records be accurately recorded and well maintained.
