Automation at the SL County Recorder's Office

The Salt Lake County Recorder's Office, which handles more than a thousand real-estate documents daily, is going high-tech. Half of the office’s workload is shifting online. Soon the microfiche files will be replaced by an electronic database of historic documents. The old large aerial photos will be converted to an online mapping system similr to Google Earth. The plan is to eventually conduct three-quarters of the Recording Office’s business online.

The improved efficiency in the Recorder’s Office resulted in a 2009 budget that is smaller than any time since 2002.

Most of the information is not freely available there is a subscription fee of $25.00 a month with an initial set-up fee of $150.00 which includes 1st and last month access.
