The administrative juvenile judge shall have the care and custody of the files, papers, books, records, and moneys pertaining to the juvenile court, and shall be the clerk of said court, with all the powers and duties of a clerk of the court of common pleas in connection with the business of said juvenile court. He may appoint and employ such deputies, clerks, stenographers, and other assistants and attaches as are reasonably necessary in connection with the work of said court, and shall file with the county auditor certificates of such appointments. Any such appointee may be dismissed by the administrative judge. Each appointee shall qualify by taking the oath of office required by the clerk of the court of common pleas under sections 3.22 and 3.23 of the Revised Code. When so qualified, each deputy clerk may perform the duties of the clerk and shall have the same powers as a deputy clerk of the court of common pleas in matters of which the court of common pleas now has concurrent jurisdiction by virtue of section 2151.07 of the Revised Code. The administrative judge may require any of his appointees to give bond in the sum of not less than one thousand dollars, conditioned for the honest and faithful performance of his duties. The approval of the sureties, the terms, the filing, and the beneficiaries of such bonds shall be the same as in the case of the bond of the clerk under section 2153.10 of the Revised Code. The clerk shall not be personally liable for the default, misfeasance, or nonfeasance of any appointee from whom a bond has been required, approved, and filed as provided in this section.
