Between 7,000 and 8,000 homeowners had their Social Security numbers accidentally posted online. After realizing the mistake, County officials realized that they could not remove the information. People who pay to access the County's public records online will be able to see the Social Security numbers associated with people and addresses in the system that date back to 2001. The county could not alter public records in any way, but a new program will be implemented to block the Social Security numbers from newly recorded documents.
