Erase the Recorder

Cook County Considers Merging Recorder and Clerk's Offices.

Joe Tirio - Wednesday, June 29, 2016

Cook County's finance board will meet today to discuss whether the people of that county will have an option on the November ballot to merge the Recorder and Clerk's office. While they have some stronger language to describe their Recorder's office, the core sentiment is the same, we must seize any opportunity to reduce government size and cost.

 

From the Chicago Tribune:

"If approved by voters, the recorder's office would be phased out by the end of 2020 for annual savings to taxpayers of about $800,000.

That's not big money to county politicians. But every gesture toward saving rather than taxing helps people who pay thousands in property and sales taxes to a government designed for the 1800s."
