PICAYUNE, Miss. (AP) - The chancery clerk says Pearl River County needs to finish making electronic copies of old paper records that could deteriorate.

The Picayune Item reports (https://bit.ly/2cGcls3 ) that the clerk, Melinda Bowman, is asking county supervisors to set aside money for the job.

Supervisors paid the previous chancery clerk, David Earl Johnson, $50,000 a year from 2011 until 2014 to get records scanned. In 2015, they paid him $12,500.

Johnson says he hired a company that scanned 31 years’ worth of records. Bowman estimates it would cost the county about $250,000 to get caught up with all the records.
