Hays County Courthouse, San Marcos, TX (Dec. 24, 2019) – The Hays County Commissioners Court on Tuesday recognized the Hays County Clerk’s Office for once again earning the Five Star Exemplary Award from the State Health Department’s Bureau of Vital Statistics. This is the third year in a row the County Clerk’s Office has won the designation.
“I’m really proud of my team for achieving this honor,” County Clerk Dr. Elaine Cárdenas told the Commissioners Court. “It’s rare to gain Five Star designation. It means we have exceeded the State’s highest standards for accuracy, thoroughness, timeliness, efficiency, and customer service.”
Cárdenas noted the challenges the Clerk’s Office faced this year, including a new County Clerk (referring to herself), an additional courtroom added to their workload, and a transition to new software.
