Whiteside County Recorder, Dawn M. Young, is pleased to offer Property Fraud Alert.  The free service notifies individuals when transactions involving their property are recorded in the Recorder's Office.  

"While property fraud is a serious problem in the Chicago and collar county areas, I am not aware of any local fraudulent filings.  By offering the residents of Whiteside County this type of protection, we hope to deter fraudulent recordings" Young states.

Sign up takes just a few moments and requires only the person's name and a phone number or e-mail address.  The Free service and database are managed and maintained by Fidlar Technologies, the County's software provider for land records.

The Property Fraud Alert system will deliver an alert by e-mail or telephone if the user's name appears on a document filed in the Whiteside County Recorder's Office.  Most alerts received will be for legitimate documents, such as those filed when a home is bought or sold.  But if the property owner is concerned about a document he or she is unaware of, the alert contains information that allows the owner to investigate the matter and take appropriate action.

For further details contact the Whiteside County Recorder's Office at 815.772.5192.  To subscribe free of charge:  www.propertyfraudalert.com/whitesideil or call the PFA hotline at 800.728.3858.

Star Road Closure Update

The Whiteside County Highway Department issued a public service announcement regarding a closing of Star Road (on the east edge of the City of Prophetstown, IL) beginning at Lyndon Road on the west and extending east for approximately ¼ mile.

Star Road, beginning at Lyndon Road on the west and extending east (approximately ¼ mile), will be closed to all traffic until further notice.  This closure is necessary for bridge reconstruction and has been in effect since August 16, 2010.  Weather conditions do not allow for portions of the remaining roadway approach work to be completed and the closure may possibly remain in effect until spring.  

Motorists are reminded to use the marked detour of Yorktown, Mill and Lyndon Roads which bypass this closure.  

For additional information concerning the closure, please contact the Whiteside County Highway Department at (815) 772-7651.


The annual assessor’s meeting will be held in the Emergency Operations Center, Room 117, located on the ground floor of the Whiteside County Courthouse, at Morrison, Illinois on Tuesday, December 21, 2010 at 1:00 PM  

This meeting is open to the public.
