The duties of the Recorder's Office are now handled by the County Clerk
A referendum to place the duties of the Recorder's Office into the County Clerk's Office was passed by the voters of McLean County on November 6, 2012 and took effect December 31, 2013. Both offices continue to provide professional, dedicated customer service to the public and will remain at their same locations with telephone numbers, email addresses and website links remaining the same.
Important Alert to our Customers
Due to 2018 budget cuts in McLean County and the State of Illinois, all McLean County government office budgets were cut, resulting in reduced staffing.
Please be prepared for delays in processing your requests. Bring to our attention any urgent needs so we can prioritize those requests. We may be fortunate not to experience any lengthy delays, but we did want to alert you to the possibility.
Thank you from all the McLean County staff. We hope 2019 will offer a brighter financial picture for us all.
