According to statutory requirements, the District Clerk's office gathers data and reports to many State and local agencies. This extensive reporting assists the County, the State and the Texas Legislature to determine the proper operation of the courts, the effectiveness of the statutes and the need for changes.
The District Clerk's office is responsible for managing the records so they are easily retrieved for court use and public information. As custodian of permanent records, the Clerk must assure that they are preserved and archived. Modern methods and the use of technology to facilitate an ever-expanding office have been emphasized in the District Clerk's office in the past number years.
As a financial officer, the District Clerk's office collects court costs and fines set by statutes which are deposited in the general fund of the County. Other fees are collected and allocated to the State for the benefit of State agencies.
