Tomorrow, the Franklin County Clerk of Courts’ Office will deposit $3 million in excess funds from the Certificate of Title Administration Fund to the Franklin County general fund. The funds will be available to support essential county services.
The latest deposit is another example of Clerk Maryellen O’Shaughnessy’s continued commitment to the services provided by Franklin County. Since assuming office in 2009, Clerk O’Shaughnessy’s Office has contributed $10 million to the general fund. On average, in Clerk O’Shaughnessy’s tenure, $1.65 of every Franklin County auto title transaction has gone back into the general fund.
The surplus was made possible through the dedicated efforts of our Auto Title Clerks.
Clerk O’Shaughnessy’s Auto Title division consists of four locations: East, North, South and West. The division processes over 500,000 titles annually with an average wait time of 12 minutes.
