Ordinace will double image fees

County Commissioners passed an ordinance Monday morning that will double the fees assessed by the LaGrange County Recorder for bulk copy images. The costs will increase from 10 cents per image to 20 cents per image.

“Although we only have one customer in this rate category, every nickel will help,” said County Recorder Jennifer McBride.

The ordinance became possible after newly passed legislation (2017) became law July 1. The new law caps charges at 20 cents per image, based on the county’s cost to prepare the image. Bricker said the LaGrange County cost is at least 27 cents per image.

County Attorney Kurt Bachman asked commissioners to release 29 temporary right-of-way agreements that were needed for the CR 200N project. The project is complete and commissioners released the rights-of-way.
