Air-quality, environmental-service documents soon can be filed at Maricopa County kiosks

Maricopa County Recorder Helen Purcell at 9 a.m. Tuesday, May 12, is slated to  unveil the product of a partnership with the Maricopa County Environmental Service Department and the Air Quality Department. It will take place at the Northwest Regional Library, 16089 N. Bullard Avenue in Surprise, according to a press release.

The partnership will allow Maricopa County residents to file documents with both the Environmental Service Department and the Air Quality Department through the recorder’s digital-recording kiosks. Documents able to be filed through the recording kiosks include subcontractor registrations, dust-permit cancellations and special-event applications. A full list of the services and locations is available at

The collaboration builds upon the  partnership between the Recorder’s Office and the Maricopa County Library District, which placed the digital-recording kiosks in libraries throughout Maricopa County.

“Our digital-recording kiosks already offer unparalleled convenience to Maricopa County Residents,” Ms. Purcell said in the release, “and now as a result of this collaboration, the services provided through the kiosks will be even more extensive.”  The first digital-recording kiosk was introduced in 2010, allowing for the recording of documents without traveling to the Recorder’s Office in Phoenix or Mesa.  Since then, seven additional kiosks have been placed in locations throughout Maricopa County.

“This is a culmination of county agencies working together, being fiscally responsible and making it easier for our residents to do business in Maricopa County,” Maricopa County District 4 Supervisor Clint Hickman said in the release.

“We are pleased to offer these services to Maricopa County residents and invite the public to join us for this special event,” Mrs. Purcell said in the release.

The Maricopa County Air Quality Department is a regulatory agency whose goal is to ensure federal clean air standards are achieved and maintained for the residents and visitors of Maricopa County. The department is governed by the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors and follows air quality standards set forth by the federal Clean Air Act. The department offers air quality information and resources on its Clean Air Make More website.
