During the “County Hour” on KVNU’s For the People program on Friday, the guests were Cache County Executive Craig Buttars along with county information technology director Bart Nelson. Nelson talked about CORE, which stands for Cache Online Records Express which is the new channel the county is using to provide records to the public.
“There are three facets to that, so we’ve thought about the individual citizen of the county, too,” explained Nelson. “There’s a free access, so if you want to go look up the basic assessment and taxation information on your personal property you just choose the public access point and put in your information. Basically if you know your name you can use CORE.”
The public can access it at core.cachecounty.org. Nelson said it’s been a two year effort and since CORE went live on February 21st , they’ve received calls from the public wanting to know how to use it.
He said there is also a commercial side where the realtor and title communities and even legal community can access information. Buttars praised the I.T. team headed up by Nelson. He said they know very well what they’re doing and are always willing to serve the public.
