What is a review officer and what are his or her responsibilities?

A Review Officer, designated by County Commissioners, is someone who reviews most surveys before recordation. The Review Officer shall review expeditiously each map or plat required to be submitted to the Officer before the map or plat is presented to the Register of Deeds for recording. The Review Officer shall certify the map or plat if it complies with all statutory requirements for recording. If the surveyor certifies that the plat is of an existing parcel or is in an unregulated area then the plat may be recorded without Review Officer acknowledgement.
