County Duties

Establish a land information office (LIO).  The LIO shall:

  • Coordinate land information projects
  • Prepare and maintain a plan for land records modernization
  • Review and recommend projects (grants) for local governments

A key study by the Wisconsin Department of Administration in 1976 known as the "Larsen Report" identified land records data collection and management as a multi-million dollar activity that begins at the local government level.  In an effort to improve the condition and access to this information, and to reduce duplicative efforts, the state established the Wisconsin Land Information Program in 1989.

Today's efforts to modernize Wisconsin land information, improve its quality, and make it broadly accessible are coordinated and facilitated through county Land Information Offices.  As part of the Wisconsin Land Information Program, each county has a designated Land Information Office, Land Information Officer, and a Land Information Plan that guides local activities.  While each county office may be organized somewhat differently from county to county, all LIOs can be counted on to serve as point of beginning to help find the appropriate county land-related office or service.

List of Land Information Officers and Offices

Each county has designated a Land Information Officer and is obligated to keep that designation current by notifying the Wisconsin Department of Administration's Division of Intergovernmental Relations

The LIO Network coordinates the maintenance of its LIO listing with DOA. In addition to the LIO, LION identifies an alternate to the LIO to assist with communication and information sharing.  The LIO holds the county vote unless it is designated to the alternate or another designee.  The LIO alternate is not a statutorily recognized position.

Land Information Plans

In order to participate in the Wisconsin Land Information Program, each county must maintain an approved plan for land information modernization that outlines goals, progress and planned and completed activities.
