As Kay County Clerk it is my job to provide a courteous and helpful atmosphere that instills public confidence and trust to all who visit this office. My goal for this website is to extend the same helpful and accurate information online that you can receive by visiting the courthouse. I hope you find this website beneficial and would welcome any questions or concerns you may have. This is never meant to replace the personal service you receive from our office, just an extension of our service to you.
As always I am committed to the preservation, protection and maintenance of our Kay County records from patents issued in the land run to the documents filed today. It is an honor to serve the people of Kay County and thank you for allowing me to be your County Clerk.
