Jacobs Takes Major Step in Going Paperless

Will save time and money

Erie County, NY – County Clerk Jacobs announced a major accomplishment in his effort to use technology to save time for customers and money for the taxpayer. Nearly 25,000 documents that have historically come into the Clerk’s Office in paper-form every year are now coming into the office electronically.

“This is very significant because we have had one full-time employee assigned solely to this task to process all this paperwork.

The innovation is also saving money in costly paper and postage he said.
