The County Clerk is a Constitutional Officer elected by the voters of Shawano County.

The County Clerk is the legal custodian of public records of the County Board and any Committee, Commission, Board or Authority created by ordinance or resolution of the Board. The County Clerk assists all new and terminating employees with the enrollment forms and information regarding their fringe benefits (e.g., health insurance, life insurance, retirement, etc.).

This office is also in charge of the courthouse information which addresses incoming calls, directs the public to proper offices, answers numerous questions from the public, and reserves meeting rooms for various committees and organizations.


In an effort to better serve its customers, Shawano County has installed a drive-up payment drop box in the parking lot adjacent to the courthouse. This will allow for after-hour and weekend payments. Payments can be made for county property taxes and county fines. Payment must be by check or money order. Do not use cash. Payments should be marked with the payer's name, address, phone number, and type of payment. Payment envelopes are available in the Clerk of Court office and the County Treasurer's office.
