Franklin County, with financial and technical assistance from the Franklin County Records Improvement Committee, openED a new records management office beginning Aug. 11.  This renovated office space located on Franklin Farm Lane will be utilized to begin work on the county's records management initiative.  This project is designed to assist the county in achieving greater efficiencies in operation as well as reduce the total costs associated with records retention and storage by digitally scanning and storing records and information rather than maintaining physical files.  The initial phase of this initiative involves the processing, scanning and microfilming of records for seven county offices (Adult Probation, Clerk of Courts, District Attorney's Office, Prothonotary, Public Defender's Office, Register and Recorder and Sheriff) and will serve as the foundation for the county's comprehensive records management program.
