Gleed says Recorder’s office has tried to accomodate difficulties of four-day work week

Michael Gleed has served as Cache County Recorder for 32 years and once again he is seeking re-election. This year he is being challenged by fellow Republican Stanly R. Palmer. There will be a vote for the position at the April 30th Cache County Republican Convention.On a recent episode of KVNU’s Crosstalk Show, Gleed said he enjoys his job. He explained that his main responsibility is to record documents relating in any way to land ownership.In the fall of 2008, Cache County followed the State of Utah and moved to a four-day work week. However, complaints have come in about the Recorder’s office being closed on Fridays and the difficulties it has posed to real estate.”The real estate industry was concerned about selling property and having people be able to get their documents recorded for the weekend so they could move in,” Gleed said. “Title companies were concerned about funding that they were getting on loans through the different banks and mortgage companies. “So the decision was made to be there on Fridays. From (12) noon to 4 (p.m.) on Fridays the Recorders Office is available for accepting and recording documents.”Gleed clarified that the office is not open to the general public on Fridays. He said Fridays are for recording only.
