Community Outreach

The Clay County Clerk of Court and Comptroller’s Office is committed to community outreach and we make every effort to increase awareness about the activities occurring within our judicial system and the services provided by our Clerks.

To accomplish this we use all communication platforms available. This includes our Internet and social media presence, media releases, public speaking, fundraising for local charitable organizations, group tour programs, employee newsletters, video production, volunteering with community groups and active involvement with circuit-wide and statewide initiatives benefiting Clay County citizens.

Public Speaking and Clerk’s Office Tour Program

Clerk Green and members of her team are available to speak to your organization on a variety of topics. While normally, these guest appearances are done at your organization’s location or in-person at our site, we do have online/remote options available now due to COVID-19 restrictions. Tours of the main Clay County Courthouse, 1890 Historic Courthouse, Old County Jail and Archives Center are available by appointment for groups of 10 people or less. To make it a more meaningful experience, these tours can also be done in partnership with other governmental offices located nearby in Green Cove Springs.

To request a speaker or tour, in whatever format is appropriate at the time, please call Community Outreach Director Mary Justino at (904)269-6337 or send a request by email.

Clerk Green welcomed the latest class of the CCSO’s Citizens’ Academy. They enjoyed their tour of the courthouse and had many great questions for Clerk Green afterwards.
