Gayla Harris Miller, Circuit, Criminal, Sessions and Juvenile Court clerk for Bradley County, has received the 2012-2013 audit results.
 
Ms. Miller said, “With great pride, for the seventh consecutive year since being elected in 2006, there have been no findings or recommendations found by the Tennessee State Auditors. It is an honor and great achievement of which to be proud.”
 
During the fiscal year 2012-2013, my offices have collected $2,639,480 in revenues, which was turned over to the Bradley County General Fund.  The funds are disbursed on a monthly basis.
 
Ms. Miller said, “This is a substantial revenue for Bradley County.
My staff and I work hard in the best interest for you, the citizens."
 
Ms. Miller oversees nine courts at three locations and 31 deputy clerks.
 
She said, "Our case loads have increased every year.  Court cost has been paid in a timely manner due to the Payment Plan Program that was implemented when elected. It is a constant challenge to keep up with the changing laws and procedures daily, with court cost, fines and fees being mandated by the State of Tennessee."
 
Ms. Miller said she will continue along with her dedicated staff to work diligently and with professionalism, to stay current on laws and changes to benefit Bradley County’s future.
