County maps now online

Those who have purchased plat books for information about properties in Fayette County now  can get it online.
Fayette County Supervisor of Assessments Cindi Lotz made a presentation to the county board on Tuesday on what she described as an “electronic plat book.”
Lotz said a new GIS (Geographic Information System) website – – that is hosted by The Sidwell Co. and maintained by her office provides the same maps that are available in plat books.
And, she said, the information on properties in the county is updated continually on the website.
The website maps show property boundaries (for tax purposes), and users of the website can see who owns specific properties.
It also can provide the longitude and latitude of properties, and while it doesn’t have the capability of showing the number of acres per parcel, she said that she will be working with The Sidwell Co. to get that feature added.
Currently, website visitors can use a ruler tool in the toolbar at the top of the webpage to measure the acreage of an area.
Visitors can search for specific parcels by either parcel number or name of property owners, Lotz said.
One thing website visitors will not be able to do on the website, she said, is print parcel maps; those maps will still have to be purchased from her office.
