Butler County Engineer
Greg Wilkens announces that the BCEO's Tax Map Office will officially
relocate on October 5 from the County Administration Building
in downtown Hamilton to the Butler County Engineer's Office on
Route 4 next to the fairgrounds.
"This move is
designed to improve efficiency and reduce operating costs,"
Wilkens explained. "As we've made tax mapping services available
online the need for our customers to visit the Tax Map Office
has been minimized from years past. We've never lost sight of
servicing the public and with this move will make access even
that traditionally involved a trek to the BCEO's Tax Map Department
in downtown Hamilton got a lot easier several years ago when
tax map records were made available online courtesy of a new
Interactive Web Map developed by the Engineer's Tax Map / GIS
and Information Services Departments. Until then, this information
was only accessible to the public in the Tax Map Office by using
paper map books. Wilkens noted at the time: "We're excited
to offer this new service and believe it will be a convenient
alternative for many users of our tax mapping services. Our Tax
Map and Information Services personnel did an outstanding job
of putting this together."
Online tax mapping
services make it easier to now consolidate Tax Map operations
with the rest of the Engineer's Office. "We will still have
personnel on hand to offer the same great services to our citizens
who visit the Tax Map Office," said Wilkens. "Our goal
has been to combine helpful personnel with utilization of modern
technology to better serve the public. Throughout the last four
to five years we've made major advances in the use of technology
not only in the Tax Map Department but thoughout our entire organization,
enabling us to do more with less and within a shorter time frame."
