Representattives from the Clerk of Court's office join the County Commission
In Florida, Clerks of the Circuit Court have been mandated by the State Constitution to be keepers of all official records and documents. In the past an exorbitant amount of resources, staff time, paper and storage space has been allocated for the retention of court and document records.
The paper documents are subject to the rigors of time and other events such as fires, floods and vermin. Thanks to new technology, records are now more readily stored on electronic files with back up procedures which ensure they will never be damaged, destroyed or lost.
Upon direction of the Florida Supreme Court and with final approval of the Chief Judge of the 7th Judicial Circuit, Flagler County Clerk Gail Wadsworth was the first Clerk in the Seventh Judicial Circuit to implement the paper on demand court filing system.
