Beginning this month the office of the Mercer County Clerk, Paula Sollami Covello, will extend its hours for title searches and records research. The Records Room, normally open from 8:30 to 4 p.m., is now open Wednesday nights.
Said Covello: “This change will benefit both residents and businesses of Mercer County who may not be able to use the public record room during normal business hours. My goal is to make government more accessible and business-friendly.”
The Records Room, now open on Wednesday nights until 6:45 p.m., houses recorded deeds, mortgages, tax liens, other liens, and business trade names. Most of this information is contained in books and on microfilm, but information from 1997 forward is also searchable by computer. The Clerk’s Office recently added six new public search terminals and is presently working on computerizing its business trade names.
The Clerk’s Office is located at 209 South Broad Street in Trenton in the Old County Court house. For information call 609-989-6353.
