Executive Summary:

Clerk-Recorder-Assessor requests the Board to waive fees for copies of specified records for owners of properties impacted by the 2020 LNU Lightning Complex Fires through June 30, 2021. Records provided would include the most recent recorded property deed and reconveyance, Assessor property profiles, building records and sketches. Records would be provided to the current owner of the property. These records are needed for insurance and rebuilding purposes.

 

Discussion:

Pursuant to Government Code section 26227, the Board of Supervisors may fund programs deemed by the Board to be necessary to meet the social needs of the population of the county, including but not limited to the areas of health, public safety, rehabilitation, welfare and the needs of physically, mentally and financially handicapped persons and aged persons.   The Clerk-Recorder-Assessor is recommending the Board find that the proposed waiver of costs for specified Recorder and Assessor records is necessary to meet the social needs of our community.   No other fee payers will have increased fees as a result of this board action; the General Fund will subsidize the discount to promote the recovery effort.  Clerk-Recorder-Assessor requests Board authorization to waive fees for copies of specified records, including the most recent recorded property deed and reconveyance, Assessor property profiles, building records and sketches for owners of properties impacted by the 2020 LNU Lightning Complex Fires through June 30, 2021. These records are needed for insurance and rebuilding purposes.
