During the recent summer conference of the Florida Court Clerks & Comptrollers (FCCC), conducted in Orlando, the Clay County Clerk of Court and Comptroller’s Office was recognized and received a Best Practices Excellence Program award.
The Best Practices Excellence Program was established last year as an opportunity for Clerks to receive Recognition of Excellence certificates for completing assessments that evaluate certain standards. Among our state’s 68 Clerks and Comptrollers, a total of 55 offices participated in the program this year. Of those, 32 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.
“In the second year of our FCCC Best Practices Excellence Program, we aimed to expand the program with categories that captured additional local processes that were customer-related and applicable across offices of varying sizes,” said 2021-2022 FCCC President and Manatee County Clerk of Court and Comptroller Angelina “Angel” Colonneso, Esq. “We continue to be inspired by the participation in this program by Clerks and Comptrollers committed to improving efficiency and collaboration with our justice partners and providing better services to constituents.”
The 2021-2022 Best Practices Excellence Program evaluated and recognized Clerks and Comptrollers, including Clay County’s Tara S. Green’s office, in the following areas:
- Evidence Storage and Destruction
- Eviction Processes
- Public Records Requests
- Requests to Redact Exempt Personal Information
- Exploitation of Vulnerable Adult Injunction
- Bail Bonds
- Compliance Services
- Confidential Judicial Records
- Marriage License
- Recording Fundamentals
- Service of Documents by Clerks for Pro Se Litigants
Congratulations to all our personnel whose hard work and adherence to these important best practices was recognized as part of this statewide program.
