Clerk & Comptroller's Website

The Clerk & Comptroller of Okaloosa County , JD Peacock II is committed to making our website accessible to all visitors, as well as compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Section 508 accessibility standards. Accessible web design provides benefits to individuals using assistive technology, users with text-based browsers, low-end processors, slow modem connections or users who do not have state-of-the-art computer equipment. While Section 508 standards currently apply to federal government, we have tried to apply these accessibility principles in designing and creating the Clerk & Comptroller's website.
