Office of Land Survey and Remonumentation - 641-0991-19

Description of Agency

The Office of Land Survey and Remonumentation (OLSR) administers the State Survey and Remonumentation Act (Public Act 345 of 1990) by coordinating the restoration, maintenance, and preservation of the original public land survey corners. Each county’s Register of Deeds collects a $4 per document recordation fee that funds the State Survey and Remonumentation Fund, which OLSR distributes in the form of county grants to implement the county’s monumentation or remonumentation plans. County grant amounts are determined based on a percentage of remitted recordation fee revenues plus a share of the remaining funds prorated based on the county’s square land miles.

For fiscal years 2017 and 2018, recordation fee revenue deposited into the State Survey and Remonumentation Fund totaled $7 million and $6.8 million and OLSR expended $5.5 million and $5.9 million in county grants, respectively.

Audit Objective

To assess the effectiveness of OLSR’s efforts to administer the State Survey and Remonumentation Grant Program.
