A local county is continuing its effort to make accessing its records easier for the public.

At Monday's meeting of the Lewis County Commission, the county applied for a $10,000 grant to continue scanning court records.

The county has already received a similar grant to begin the process.

Circuit Clerk John Hinzman said the money will go to hire a part-time employee to scan documents, an important task for the county.

"On the computer, somebody comes in and wants an order from say, ten years ago, and if they know the case we can just look in the computer, pull that case up and print that order out for them," Hinzman said.

Hinzman said all counties will eventually be required to have their records available digitally.
