The Circuit Courts share the nine Judicial districts that the District Courts have. The exact number of judges in each district does tend to vary depending on the case load in each district.
A city council, or such similar governing body of a city, controls local city taxes and decies city laws responsible for keeping the peace. They also are responsible for the upkeep of city property and infrastructure, like sewers or roads.
The Clerk of District Court records and keeps all records for their respective court for civil and criminal cases. They also manage any money that is paid or turned over to their court.
The County Assessors main duty is to assess the value of the property in a county so that they can be properly charged according to the current property tax laws. They also review public records so that the county has accurate information on any change of ownership of property.
A County Attorney represents their county in a court of law. This may be as a defense lawyer in a suit against the county, or as a prosecutor against some other party. They also give legal advice to other county officials, so that they can properly carry out their jobs.
The County Clerk attends and records the proceedings of all meetings of the County Commission. They will also keep the records, seal, and papers of the County Commission. They are also responsible for recording and keeping all licenses, warrants, mortgages, etc., given to or by the county.
