The following is a list of issues and priorities for Michael Miller’s first term as Charleston County’s Register of Deeds.
The office currently does not accept payments with credit and or debit cards
Michael Miller’s goal is to implement the use of credit and debit cards as another form of payment for services rendered.
A large majority of the records dating before 1997 are not electronically recorded
The Register of Deeds office dates back to 1780. Michael Miller has developed a program to increase the rate at which all records are scanned electronically.
Electronic filing of documents
This can save everyone a lot of time and money; but it will take time to implement this properly. Rest assured, this is a priority of Michael Miller.
Lack of redundancy in the office
Prior to Mr. Miller’s involvement, most of the staff had not been cross-trained on various roles and services. Michael Miller has implemented changes to allow staff to become knowledgeable in other critical areas of the office. This will create a higher functioning and improve the output of the office as a whole.
