WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. - The 2016 Annual Report of The Westchester County Clerk’s Office proudly highlights the continued strength and growth of its electronic filing systems, through which legal and land records pass through on their way to filing and recordation.

The expenditures for the operation of the Clerk’s office in 2016, totaling $ 6,344,163.50 are more than offset by the $ 9,303,259.00 in departmental fees received.

Westchester County Clerk Timothy C. Idoni stated, "The business and personal records of our commercial and public sectors are efficiently and effectively being handled through a system that processes each and every vital document in record time.  Whether they are a deed, mortgage, criminal or civil court record, business certification or incorporation, the staff and our most up-to-date computer systems are insuring accuracy and transparency vital to a modern governmental agency.” Idoni noted that land records, which twelve years ago would take many months to record, are now being handled in less than four hours.

In 2016, the Office of the Westchester County Clerk saw the continued expansion of the submission of electronic records throughout the entire organization.  By the end of 2016, almost seventy-five percent of our land records were being submitted via our e-recording system voluntarily by the public. Additionally, eighty-five percent (85%) of our civil cases were commenced electronically, either voluntarily or pursuant to state mandates, through state legislation Clerk Idoni worked hard to change with State legislative partners in Albany.
