The Clerk of Courts' main responsibility is to act as custodian for all criminal court records. These records consist of motions, pleadings, transcripts and any other filing that is related to a criminal case.
There do exist some responsibilities that are civil in nature such as maintaining road dockets, liquor board matters, and other miscellaneous dockets. These civil responsibilities only account for a small percentage of the Clerks' responsibilities. Again, the major concern is criminal records.
