Welcome to the Public File Search
PDF Print E-mail

The Public Files Search link contains Health Dept. Well & Septic Program residential property files from approximately 1985 through the present. Some properties constructed before 1985 may contain a file in this system if activity such as a building permit or sewage disposal system repair occurred after 1985. Non-residential properties, undeveloped lots, subdivision master files, properties in which development is ongoing, and properties in which no activity has occurred since before approximately 1985 are not in this system. If you do not find the property file in this system, please submit a Public Information Act form to our Department.
