Foster D. Arnett, Jr. - Knox County Clerk

Welcome to the Knox County Clerk’s website. The Knox County Clerk is a constitutional officer elected to a four-year term. One of the Clerk’s primary functions is to keep the official minutes and records of the activities of the Knox County Commission and its Standing Committees. These records are maintained in the Commission Library in our offices at the Old County Courthouse. The County Clerk also maintains records of marriage licenses and automobile titles issued in the County.

The County Clerk also has the responsibility to receive fees, set by state law, for various transactions, such as motor vehicle registration and automobile titles, drivers’ license renewals, notary commissions, marriage licenses and passports. We assist the State Department of Revenue in collecting automobile sales tax and privilege taxes. All revenues in excess of operating expenses are transferred to the County general fund for the maintenance and improvement of public services.
