Service 1st Through Efficiencies – County Clerk of Court’s Review – By Gary Walters, Licking County Clerk of Courts

Last year was a very busy year in the Clerk’s office.  The title office produced over 130,000 titles and the Legal side processed 165,000 filings.  These numbers were accomplished while many changes were occurring.  We are hopeful that we have provided good service to the citizens of Licking County.

General Division Review: The General Division of the Clerk’s Office had a busy 2017 with the Courthouse renovation project.  The office was relocated to the ground floor for roughly three months while the new elevator was installed.  The staff was able to return to our completely remodeled office at the end of October.  In addition to all of the challenges created by the renovation project, the staff also saw a significant increase in civil and criminal filings this year.   When compared to last year’s numbers, an additional 300 criminal and 100 civil cases were processed.  Our staff worked diligently to keep up with this increased workload, while striving to provide excellent service to the citizens of Licking County.

Title Office Review:  We upgraded to a new titling system in January of 2017 which enhanced the performance of issuing titles.  Another change is Ohio House Bill 432 which now allows a surviving spouse to transfer an unlimited number of motor vehicles into their name as long as the vehicle value does not exceed $65,000.  Our main office continues to be located at 877 East Main Street in Newark and our branch office is located at 316 Township Road in Pataskala.  We are excited to announce we are opening a second branch office in New Albany at 12938 Worthington Road.  We believe a title office would greatly benefit the residents and dealers in this area.  We are hopeful this facility will be completed around August 1, 2018.

Domestic Division Review:   In 2017, the Domestic Clerk of Courts had several changes over the year.  In preparation for the new Record’s Center our staff has been working diligently to prepare files for the transfer of our records. These include scanning, inventorying cataloging, labeling, and tracking all records.  There was a slight increase in the number of cases filed in 2017.  We have implemented taking credit cards for court costs and fees along with online payment of court costs.  The Clerk’s office is in the process implementing Fed Ex as one of our service methods for service documents.
