Clerk's Responsibilities

The County Clerk has one of the most diverse jobs of all county elected officials. In fact, constitutional and statutory laws have given this one elective county officer five distinct titles: 

  • Auditor
  • Chief Elections Officer of the County (County Resource Manual, Idaho Association of Counties)
  • Clerk of the Board of County Commissioners
  • Clerk of the District Court
  • Recorder

In Kootenai County, there are over 90 deputy clerks who work in the various departments under the Clerk as well as in the Board of County Commissioners' Office. In the role of Auditor, the Clerk's office is responsible to prepare the annual county budget for the Board of County Commissioners. 

The Auditor's office also notifies every taxing district or authority as well as the State Board of Education of the total taxable valuation of all the taxable property located within each taxing district, including Urban Renewal funding.
