To fulfill this responsibility, the office ensures that these records are accurate, up-to-date, and easily accessible to the public as needed. Secondly, the office is committed to providing excellent customer service to the public, which involves being knowledgeable, helpful, and responsive to the needs of customers, whether in person or over the phone.
