Jennifer Wagenius is new county recorder

Jennifer Wagenius, the director of the Department of Property Records and Taxpayer Services, was named county recorder by the Washington County Board on Tuesday, May 8. Special legislation was passed in 1997 that allowes the county board to appoint a department head to carry out the statutory duties of the Office of County Recorder. In 2006, the departments of Assessment, Taxpayer Services and Elections and the Office of Recorder were merged to form the Department of Property Records and Taxpayer Services.  Kevin Corbid was the previous director. He was appointed as the county deputy administrator in February, and in April, Wagenius was appointed as Director of Property Records and Taxpayer Services. State law requires the county board to appoint an official to carry out the statutory duties of the Office of County Recorder.
