County Clerk: Paul Hinds
The County Clerk is the Clerk of the DuPage County Board, Secretary of the
Liquor Control Commission and Secretary of the Emergency Telephone System
Board. As such, the clerk must attend all meetings, keep a record of the
proceedings, attest to all ordinances and resolutions and warrant the County
Treasurer to pay all county bills. The County Clerk issues many different
licenses: marriage, civil union, business, liquor, raffle, tobacco, amusement
device and notary public; furnishes copies of birth, death, marriage and civil
union certificates; files and records economic interest statements of all
officials in DuPage County. The County Clerk plays a vital role in the taxation
process by compiling the up-to-date list of all county parcels of property for
tax assessment, calculates the amount of tax for each parcel and certifies
those amounts to the Treasurer for collection.
The County Clerk also
compiles an "About DuPage Government Resource Guide", containing addresses and
phone numbers of Federal, State, Township and Local Officials.
