§2487.12. Powers and duties of clerk
The clerk shall keep the minute entries of the court and a docket of all proceedings had in both civil and criminal matters. He may sign, under the seal of the court, all writs and processes in civil and criminal cases, including citations and subpoenas, and may make and take affidavits for the issuance of arrest warrants in criminal cases and for the issuance of peace bonds, and for all other purposes connected with the functions of the court, but he shall not exercise any judicial powers.
The clerk may also certify to all official documents of the court and administer oaths, and his acts, as such, as well as the certificates issued by him, shall be given the same effect as those of clerks of district courts.
