Record Preservation Company To Begin Scanning Marshall Co. Documents

A records preservation company is expected to start scanning all of the Marshall County Recorder’s records today, pending the county attorney’s final review and approval.

Recorder Marlene Mahler had presented the contract with Fidlar at the most recent Marshall County Commissioners meeting, but County Attorney James Clevenger found that there is no warranty information and no security agreement on paperwork that must be transported off-site for scanning.

Mahler called the company during the commissioners’ meeting and said the company’s attorney will review those additions and anticipates no objections.

If the contract is approved, the company will use a room in the Marshall County government building to scan all documents, working 22 hours a day in three-person shifts. The cost of the process was approved at a cost of $104,500.
