Since December 2021, Lawrence County has launched three new online programs to provide enhanced services to its more than 80,000 constituents. As the elected dual officeholder, Register and Recorder Tammy Crawford has overseen the implementation of all three programs which includes GovOS Cloud Search, eFiling and eProbate solutions.
“As Register and Recorder of Lawrence County, I strive to provide innovative and quality services to our constituents,” said Tammy Crawford. “For many residents, having the option to access services like these online, outside of regular business hours, means they can take action when it’s most convenient to them and we, in turn, can add even more efficiencies to our processes. Through our partnership with GovOS, we have been able to provide a diverse range of options to expand the ways constituents do business with our office.”
Lawrence County was the first in Pennsylvania to launch GovOS Cloud Search and its citizens can quickly and easily search more than 1 million public records dating back to 1959. Crawford and her team are continuing to add records dating back to the county’s inception, all of which will be available to search online. Citizens can also use this system to purchase certified copies through a secure online portal and print off any information needed at home.
In addition to Cloud Search, the county launched GovOS eProbate and GovOS eFiling so users can scan and send documents to the office electronically. Since launch, the county has received more than 70 eFiling submissions and 29 eProbate submissions.
In 2022, Lawrence County began working with GovOS to migrate all of their historic images and go-forward records to PDF/A format for archival storage, complying with requirements established by the PA Historical Museum and Archives. Most recently, the county launched GovOS Property Alert to allow citizens to subscribe, free of charge, to receive alerts any time a document has been recorded with their name, Parcel ID or other criteria set up in their profile.
