The Clerk of Superior Court office is not a static entity. Needs of the citizenry change and functions expand and evolve. Beginning January 1, 2011, the Superior Court Clerks were tasked by the legislature to provide oversight and supervision to the Board of Equalization (BOE) in each county. While this duty is far removed from traditional court functions, the legislature determined changing the supervision of the BOE from the taxing authority and/or the property appraisal authority was in the best interest of the citizens of Georgia.
