Clerks in the Sunshine


The Florida Constitution established the Clerk & Comptroller as a public trustee, independently elected to safeguard public funds and public records. Since the Clerk is responsible for Palm Beach County finances and Official Records as well as all court records of the 15th Judicial Circuit, portions of the Clerk’s budget have different revenue sources, different expenditure rules and different approval authorities.

Our budget includes personnel and operating costs from four funding sources: Palm Beach County Board of County Commissioners, Official Records Recording fees, State of Florida funding and Court Technology fees.

Summary of Expenditures by Funding Source: County Fiscal Year 2018-2019 Budget
