Ketchikan Recorder's Office Closure
By Chris Elliott
February 28, 2015
The Legislature is very seriously considering closing the Ketchikan Recorder's Office. This is where deeds and other documents are recorded for the Ketchikan Recording District, the Wrangell Recording District, and the Petersburg Recording District. If the office closes, we will be forced to mail documents to Juneau for recordation.
Currently, you can find old recorded documents by looking them up on the computer at the Recorder's Office and print copies. That, too, will have to be done by mail. I am so sick of the giant steps backward we keep taking. Everything is being centered in Juneau and Anchorage. The rest of the State can just whistle. The least the State could do is provide us with the ability to record documents electronically. I believe title companies have this option. If I wanted to throw someone under the bus, I'd bring up the Sitka Recorder's Office, but that would be mean.
Please contact the governor or your representative/Senator.
