The Office of the Clerk
of the Circuit Court is in dire need of an additional full-time
person to record deeds and other land record documents, collect
taxes and fees, receipt for the same, and scan land records for
retrieval in the Records Management System.
Through August of this
year, 19412 documents have been recorded in the deed books,
compared with 14,247 for the same period last year – an increase
of 36%. The office is
increasingly falling behind in recording the documents received by
mail and remains behind in completing the processing of these
documents for public use. Accordingly,
a request is made to the Board of Supervisors for an additional
Accounting Clerk position.
