TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -
The imaging of old public records and documents can be very costly. The Lucas County Clerk of Courts Bernie Quilter is teaming up with the Wood County Clerk of Courts office on a study looking into a potential shared service operation.
The state awarded a $90,000 government innovation grant for the study, where other counties and government entities in Ohio could pay to have old records scanned and stored electronically.
Quilter says he believes Lucas and Wood Counties could help generate savings, instead of government agencies having to pay a private company for that service.
"We can go back and do the back log for them. They could do the present day forward, we would do all their backlog which could save them approximately 25 to 30 percent. We're hoping the feasibility study shows (that)" said Quilter.
Quilter says he's hoping the study will be completed by the end of the year and the new shared service operation could be up and running early next year.
