Iron County Clerk

The Michigan Constitution provides that the voters of each county shall elect a Clerk on a partisan basis every four years.

The County Clerk’s duties are prescribed by law, and include being the Clerk of the Circuit Court, of the Iron County Board of Commissioners, the Board of Canvassers, the County Election Commission, the Election Scheduling Committee, the County Apportionment Board, Concealed Weapons Licensing Board, Register of Vital Records and Chief Election Officer.

The County Clerk also has the care and custody of the county seal, all records, books and papers pertaining to the office. The Clerk also files and records all civil, criminal and divorce proceedings under the Court’s direction. In addition, the Clerk maintains birth and death records, assumed business names and partnership records, concealed weapon permits, veterans’ discharge records, marriage licenses and notary public licenses. The Clerk also serves as the chief election official by presiding over every election held within the county. 

With Diane Hilberg’s  retirement effective December 31, 2016, Joetta Grieg was elected to the newly-created combined County Clerk/Register of Deeds as of January 1, 2017.  Joetta has been the Register of Deeds since January 1, 2013.  Joetta now assumes overseeing both offices.

Tara Peterson, (906-875-0608) and Julie Kezerle, (906-875-0610), both Deputy Clerks handle accounts payable, vital records, court documents, along with other duties. Deputy Clerks can also assume the duties of the County Clerk in her absence.

This office welcomes, at all times, the opportunity to be of service to the people of this county. We are your employees.
