County recorder looking at redaction software, site passwords

At a Boone County Commission budget work session today, Recorder Bettie Johnson told the commission that even in a recession, her office is making more money than expected.

They also spoke about two budget items that would change the way the public gets information her office.

Much like County Assessor Tom Schauwecker‘s site, Johnson is looking at making information on her site only accessible with a free password.

“There’s no criteria,” she said. “It’s just so we have background if identity theft or something occurs.”

The programming for that is scheduled for the last quarter of this fiscal year.

They are also looking at buying software that would help redact sensitive information such as social security numbers from public documents.
