Satellite Office to Close

by @ 5:03 pm. Filed under Archived, Registry Ops

The Middlesex South Satellite Office in Lowell will close permanently on June 30, 2009. Beginning July 1, 2009, all Middlesex South documents must be recorded in Cambridge.

In light of the state’s fiscal crisis, it is clear that the FY2010 budget will substantially cut the funding for this registry. But financial concerns are not the only reason for closing the Satellite Office. The recent retirement of three of our employees has shrunken our workforce to its lowest level in history. Because of changes in the way we operate (immediately scanning and returning original documents, for instance), the recording process today is much more labor intensive at the point of contact with the customer than ever before. Consequently, continuing to operate the Satellite Office with such reduced staffing levels will degrade the quality of service provided by the Middlesex North Registry, a situation that would be completely unacceptable.
