Electronic Recording Technology Board Awards Grants to Clear Creek and Huerfano Counties

Denver, August 6, 2019 - The Electronic Recording Technology Board (ERTB), housed in the Secretary of State's office, has awarded grants to Clear Creek and Huerfano Counties for upgrades to their record keeping systems. The ERTB was created in 2016 with the mission of developing, maintaining, improving, replacing, or preserving land records systems in our state. The grants help counties -- especially in rural Colorado -- invest in technological upgrades. 

At the July meeting, the ERTB awarded two counties the following grants: 

  • Clear Creek: $23,085 to purchase a new scanner and new printing equipment and to fund a 2019 vendor maintenance fee.
  • Huerfano: $189,893.67 for digitization and indexing of historical records and the replacement of two public work stations.

“The Electronic Recording Technology Board is helping Colorado counties upgrade to the latest technologies to meet their constituents’ needs. Investments in rural Colorado are crucial to ensuring that everyone in Colorado shares in our state’s success,” said Secretary of State Jena Griswold. 

The Board also reelected all three of its officers:

  • Chair: Susan Corliss, Kit Carson Clerk and Recorder
  • Vice Chair: Scott Stucky, Mortgage Industry Consultant
  • Treasurer: Gary Zimmerman, Senior Program Director – Colorado Department of State

Governor Polis earlier this month appointed Robert Howe to the ERTB. He represents the Title Industry and replaces Gary Leece whose term expired June 30.

The ERTB was created in 2016, after a working group made up of real estate, title, lending, and legal professionals, as well as county subject-matter experts conducted an evaluation of Colorado’s recording systems. Since the its creation, the board has awarded more than three million dollars to ensure county clerks are able to improve and maintain property records, marriage licenses, and other important documents.
