During last week’s county meeting, Mahler did a “show and tell” presentation between a plat book from 1836 and a refurbished one. Five of the county’s original plat books were sent to a company in Michigan who used special fluids to clean and brighten the pages. It also removed all the tape that had been used to keep the pages together. Once cleaned the pages were placed into acid-free liners that will preserve them forever.
Mahler used the Recorder’s perpetuation fund to complete the project. No tax dollars were used.
