PORT TOWNSEND — The Jefferson County Auditor’s office will accept maps for recording plats and surveys that are drawn on either paper or mylar material beginning June 1.
The change brings the office into compliance with changes to RCW 58.09.050 (1), RCW 58.09.110 (5), Chapter 434-663 WAC and Chapter 434-677 WAC.
Previously, the auditor’s office could only accept maps that were drawn on the more durable, but also more expensive, mylar material for recording of surveys and plats.
The changes to the applicable state laws allows the use of less expensive paper maps for recording plats and surveys.
Scanning the maps and preserving them electronically compensates for the decreased durability of the paper maps.
