A Message From Your County Clerk/Recorder


As your County Clerk/Recorder for Henry County, I am honored to provide valuable services to the citizens of Henry County.  It is a privilege to serve as your County Clerk/Recorder.  Our services vary from maintaining records of the County's vital statistics and records including birth, death and marriage certificates and reporting those to the State, as required by law.  Duties also include the processing of accounts payable and accounts receivable.  I am the County Recorder for all land records in the county, and also the Election Authority administering the electoral process including voter registrations.  My office also administers services to the general public such as commissioning notary publics, receiving delinquent taxes and  annually publishing a County Directory of the Elected Officials of the County and municipal office holders.  Along with many other services we also handle tax services such as annually calculating the rates for the Henry County taxing districts which includes working with the Supervisor of Assessments and the Henry County Treasurer to issue property tax bills.   I hope you take advantage of the many services we offer, as it is our goal to extend these services to the public in a timely and efficient manner.
