Century Of Clark County Public Records Could Go Online

A century of public records could soon go online in Clark County.

Documents related to plans for nuclear waste storage at Yucca Mountain are among the records that would be digitally archived through the Clark County clerk's office.

County commissioners approved the office's request to pursue a $100,000 grant for the project.

People would be able to search the documents by subject, content or date.

About eight years of records that are already digitized will go into the online database over the next few months.

Documents going back to 1909 will be added later in what is anticipated to be a years-long effort.

County Clerk Lynn Goya said the work could turn up previously unknown pieces of the county's history.
