Our mission is to maintain the integrity of all property transactions along with military service records. These records are entrusted to our department to protect and preserve for each of the 22 municipalities throughout Essex County. Generating over 46 million dollars in revenue annually, our department is ensuring that â€œAs a taxpayer, your business is our business.â€
Since I was sworn into office in January 2015 we have made substantial changes and meaningful progress that I look forward to sharing with you. In addition to renovating the office, we have implemented a more efficient process of recording time sensitive documents to meet mandates of New Jersey State statute. We have invested in the modernization of our technology and staff development to ensure an excellent customer experience for our citizens. The County of Essex is now participating in the collection of fees through the office of the Register for the Homelessness Trust Fund. We recognize that we cannot solve all of the problems that contribute to homelessness; however, it is our hope to raise funds (approximately $150,000 annually) to help the county alleviate poverty and other societal factors that contribute to homelessness.
