A Note From The Clerk
I am honored to have been elected to serve the citizens of this great community as County Clerk and proud to have joined the dedicated team of Deputy Clerk's in the Rockwall County Clerk's office. I was elected to office in November of 2010 and one of the highlights of my life was to be sworn in by Congressman Ralph Hall on January 1, 2011.
Few of us go through life without calling on the Clerk's office for birth certificates, marriage licenses, deeds to our homes and other property as well as death certificates or assumed name certificates for starting a business and a multitude of other personal and business documents. Beyond recording life's major events and transactions in Rockwall County, we provide clerical support for the Rockwall County Court at Law under presiding Judge Brian Williams, Maintaining records for criminal and civil cases as well as cases for probated estates and guardianships. As County Clerk I'm also the clerk of Commissioners Court and have the duty of recording and creating minutes of all proceedings. Without County Clerks, many of government's underlying responsibilities would go undone.
Working diligently to bring innovation and technology to the office, I have implemented electronic recording of property records and made foreclosure searches available online. Plats can now be accessed electronically and I have automated the process of recording an annotating Commissioners Court meeting minutes. Rockwall is one of the few counties in the state that provides efficient and reliable online access to our property records from the 1800's to current day. All of which allows our citizens access to our records with more ease and efficiency. A constant challenge is safeguarding and preserving millions of documents. We are currently in the process of a multiyear project to preserve our County's precious archival records. To date, we have completed preserving marriage books, Commissioners Court books and deed record books.
I am a firm believer that advanced technology, employee teamwork and professional management are the keys to providing excellent customer service. We will continue to develop and implement ways to make more services available with your convenience in mind.
