Assembly Bill 2238 – Names  

In September of 2002, the Governor signed into law Assembly Bill 2238 (Chapter 621 of the Statutes of 2002), which further restricts information that can be posted on the Internet. Existing Government Code section 6254.21 prohibits any state or local agency from posting the home address or telephone number of any elected or appointed official (or their family) on the Internet without first obtaining the written permission of that individual. Effective January 1, 2003, Chapter 621 amends section 6254.21 to extend this prohibition to "public safety officials" (and their family).

Due to the difficulty of identifying all such officials (and their families) and duly removing their names and addresses from the internet enabled databases our subscriber based data applications will no longer be available as of December 31, 2002.

Roll information provided by the Assessor shall not be displayed on the internet by other state or local agencies.

The Grantor-Grantee Index for searching official records is available to the public without the need for a subscriber password. Click here to go to the Grantor-Grantee Index.

Additionally, you may obtain a CD with the Assessor's Closed Assessment Roll Property Information file by contacting our office.

You may still access data at the front lobby machines at any of our offices in North or South County that contain the ownership information. Click here for a list of our offices with addresses and phone numbers.
