Hendry County Clerk of Circuit Court Receives Best Practices Award

Florida’s Clerks and Comptrollers have collaborated on Best Practices for more than 14 years.

The FCCC Best Practices Committee, chaired by Volusia County Clerk of Court Laura E. Roth, Esq., determined seven areas of Best Practices for the program to recognize in 20202021. This year, the committee added five new categories: Eviction, Evidence Storage and Destruction, Public Records Requests, Request to Redact Exempt Personal Information and Exploitation of Vulnerable Adult Injunction.

Among the 68 Clerks and Comptrollers, a total of 55 offices participated in the program, and 30 Clerks and Comptrollers received Recognition of Excellence certificates in every category that applied to their designated office. In total, participating offices collectively completed 551 assessments to achieve their best practice certificates.
