If you want to buy a car, open a business, get married or have a county resolution recorded in Dickson County, you need to go through Luanne Greer.

And now the state has recognized the efficiency of Dickson County’s clerk.

The County Officials Association of Tennessee has named Greer the County Clerk of the Year. Greer received the award this month, but she is listed as the 2020 winner because the organization did not meet last year because of the pandemic.

The Dickson native was elected to the clerk’s position for the first time in 2010. She said she plans to run for re-election in 2022.

The county clerk’s duties include registering vehicles when cars are bought or sold, accepting notary requests which are presented to the county commission for approval, issuing business licenses and marriage licenses.

She also serves as the clerk of the Dickson County Commission, which involves keeping the minutes for the meetings and recording all resolutions.

This is the first time Greer has won this award. She holds a business administration and accounting degree and is a certified public administrator.

“I love helping the people of Dickson County,” she said. “I just enjoy the contact I have with people in the county. Sometimes it’s challenging when I can’t help them. I think the people in Dickson County are phenomenal. You can call on them, and I hope I’m that way for them.”

Dickson County Mayor Bob Rial said of Greer, “I am excited to hear about Luanne’s award as the county clerk of the year. She works very hard for the citizens of Dickson County. I am so happy that she was recognized for her efforts. She was always willing to go the extra mile to help the county’s customers.”
