Lewis County Circuit Clerk Goes Digital

Posted: Updated:

A local circuit court has started to go digital.

The Circuit Clerk's office in Lewis County has begun keeping all its records electronically.

The county is one of three in the state testing the new system before it's used statewide.

Circuit Clerk John Hinzman said the new system will save citizen's time when they come to get a document from the court, and it'll be easier on the office, too.

"We don't do any order indexing or files or anything. We get ours papers in, we'll scan them, put them in our file, away, and it'll be so much quicker I think," said John Hinzman, Circuit Clerk

Starting this month, the circuit's clerks office is also electronically filing all the new documentation it gets.
