Cell phone use is prohibited in the Town Clerk’s Land Records Office.

Hand held scanners are a permitted use. Under State
Statute 1-212 (g) Any individual may copy a public
record through the use of a hand-held scanner. A
public agency may establish a fee structure not to
exceed twenty dollars for an individual to pay each
time the individual copies records at the agency
with a hand-held scanner. As used in this section,
“hand-held scanner” means a battery operated
electronic scanning device the use of which (1)
leaves no mark or impression on the public record,
and (2) does not unreasonably interfere with the
operation of the public agency.

Cell phones may be considered a handheld scanner, as
such, if an individual wishes to make a facsimile of
a Land Record, we will charge them accordingly. We
are initiating the prohibition of cell phone use in
order to manage our records.
