As Clerk I am committed to enhancing our levels of efficiency in serving our customers and in providing optimum levels of access to the public to enhance their confidence in the performance of County government services. Realizing that government resources are limited, an increasing emphasis must be given to new innovative technologies which will enable my staff to 'work smarter, not harder' and perform in a more cost-effective manner.  - Deb Houghtaling, Sarpy County Clerk/Register of Deeds
