Weld County Clerk and Recorder Karly Koppes, alongside the Recording Department, announced three new updates in the office.
The first update consists of a new, up-front document scanning system. Customers will hand in the documents they want to be scanned into the recording system, and then they receive the original documents back once the process is complete. According to Koppes, this saves money on postage costs, and allows customers to continue working immediately.
The second update is an e-marriage module scheduled to go live on Aug. 14. The module will allow couples to fill out their marriage license application online before they come in to the recording office to get their license.
“This will save an estimate of 15-20 minutes at the counter for both the customers and the team when the couple comes in to receive the marriage license, which of course means couples will be able to celebrate sooner, as well,” Koppes said.
The final update is the implementation of legislation that passed in the 2017 Colorado Legislation Session. Senate Bill 17-129 will allow counties to return plat maps — to-scale maps that show the divisions of a piece of land — to the submitter, thus saving space in the recording office.
“The Recording team has been working hard over the past few months to iron out these updates to the office and has done a great job. They can be very proud of themselves,” Koppes said.
