Requirements for Recording a Plat or Survey


Must be an original, with original signatures.

Size limitations 24” x 36”.

A Mylar copy is to be provided to the Planning Department. If the original is on paper, a Mylar copy must accompany it for the Recorder to retain.

Paper copies will be provided to the Auditor and Building/Planning Office.

Before recording, the plat must be presented to the Commissioners and Auditor for authorization signatures and official stamp.

The Plat must be signed by the Planning Commission.

Names should be typed or printed under all signatures.

The “prepared by” and “affirmation statement” must appear on the plat. Both statements require a printed name.

The Plat must be notarized.

In the upper right corner of the plat leave a space (approximately 4” x 2”) for the Recorders Stamp.

All plats are scanned into a computer system and can be printed full size if needed.


Surveys must be original signatures.

Surveys are scanned into a computer system also and can be printed full size.

 We will keep the copy of the survey if it is larger than 8 ½ x 14, until the microfilm comes back at that time the survey will be mailed back to the person who recorded it.

Please keep in mind that the Survey must also have the “prepared by” and “affirmation statement”, be notarized and all signatures must have the printed name beneath.
