County Clerk

About Us

The Chautauqua County Clerk's Office is the Office of Record for the Board of County Commissioners and acts as the official secretary to the Board of Commissioners, taking the minutes either in person or by deputy; keeps the seal, records the papers of the board, signs the records of proceedings, and attests the same with the official seal of the county, and is the official repository for all board records and county documents. Although the County Clerk takes the minutes, the content of the minutes is determined by the Board of County Commissioners. The Commissioners decide how in-depth to make the minutes, requiring specificity on each item, or simply documenting motions and votes.
