Plats Recorded in Digital Format

Plats recorded with Williamson County Clerk Nancy Rister now are accepted in digital format only. Effective October 1, the County Clerk’s Office will no longer accept photographic Mylar for permanent recording of plats. The new process saves the person filing the plat the expense of having a photographic Mylar created and delivered as it now can be sent on a CD or DVD. The process also saves space and improves efficiency in the County Clerk’s Office.
The Commissioners Court revised the Subdivision Regulations during their meeting on September 21 to reflect this change. The regulation now reads:
Section 3.5 At least one week before the date of the Commissioner’s Court meeting, the owner shall submit to the County Clerk a digital file in Group IV TIFF format at 400 dpi on a CD or DVD. The plat must be typed in eight point or larger so that all writing and printing is easily readable. The County Judge’s approval and the County Clerk’s approval shall be located on the last page of the plat on the lower right hand corner with the County Clerk’s approval being last.

Section 3.6 Following final approval of the subdivision, the County Clerk will record the plat in the Official Public Records of Williamson County, Texas. The signed plat will be re-scanned and the images merged into the database. The signed version of the plat will be saved to CD or DVD and returned to the owner.

                The County Clerk’s Office is located in the Williamson County Justice Center, 405 MLK , in Georgetown, Texas. For more information on plat recording, call 943-1519.
