Candidate for Recorder’s office wants a return to five-day work week

A candidate for Cache County Recorder says, if elected, he will be more up front and center when people come in and create a friendly environment as well as a user-friendly records system. Stanley R. Palmer is challenging incumbent Michael Gleed and the two Republicans will face off at the county convention on Friday, April 30. On KVNU’s Crosstalk show, Palmer, who has started two title companies since 1976, says he fees the Recorder’s office should be open on Fridays. He says the four-day work week especially hurts those in real estate. “Utah’s what they call a ‘race-to-record’ state,” Palmer says. “So the first in time is the first one who has priority. So it’s always and issue to get them recorded timely and as soon as possible. “If we have to wait over the weekend it can involve people getting higher interest rates, not being able to move in over the weekend, losing their loan locks. So it creates a lot of problems.” Although the Recorder’s office is open four hours now on Fridays for recordings only, Palmer says the building is locked and you have to knock on the window to get in.
