Placeholder Image
MONROE - Green County Register of Deeds Cynthia Meudt announced that the solicitation of a fee by a business or individual for a public record, granting rule-making authority and providing a penalty, was recently passed and signed into law by Gov. Scott Walker on Tuesday, April 8 as ACT 247. The legislation requires non-government agencies to specify there is no requirement to purchase a public record or deed from them, list what government agency does provide that record, and include the pricing of that government agency.
