Monthly reports for the Register of Deeds show all receipts and disbursements of the office, bank account reconciliation, as well as payroll expenses and monthly salaries. The Register’s operating budget for office supplies and contracted services is approved by both the mayor and commission. The salary suit document, usually filed annually, is the vehicle which authorizes the Register of Deeds to hire and pay deputies and assistants. It also lays out the guidelines for salaries and other payroll-related expenses of the office. The County Mayor approves the salary suit before it is signed into law.
