Municipal Court Clerk

Section 29.010(c), G.C., requires a municipal court clerk to keep minutes of court proceedings, issue process, and generally perform the duties for the municipal court that a county clerk performs for a county court.


The court clerk carries out the ministerial duties delegated by a judge and performs the administrative and managerial functions for the court, as the custodian of court records. These duties and functions generally include being the custodian of the funds, summoning juries, administering oaths to the jurors, and maintaining the trial docket.
