Meet Your Clerk of Orphans' Court
Kelly is very proud to present the following financial facts on behalf of the dedicated staff of the Adams County Clerk of Courts office. 
 
The Clerk of Courts office assesses, collects, and disperses court costs, fees, fines and restitution. In 2007, under the direction of Kelly with the approval of
the Court, a contempt process was implemented to assist with delinquent payments. 
 
During the first year of implementation, the office collected nearly 1 million dollars in additional revenue to the County.  She has continued with the contempt procedures and collections have steadily increased each year.  In March of 2015, the Clerk of Courts Office had record breaking collections with over $312,700.00 collected for one month. As of May 2016, the Clerk of Courts Office has twice exceeded the record breaking collections of 2015 for one month.  The new record is $335,379.98.  In 2017, the Clerk of  Courts Office frequently exceeds $300,000.00 collected each month. 
 
The office will continue to bring quality service while maintaining the integrity of the files.
