505.04 REAL ESTATE TAXES; RECORDING; COPIES.

Every plat, when duly certified, signed, and acknowledged, as provided in section 505.021, and upon presentation of a certificate from the authorized county official that the current year's taxes have been paid, shall be recorded in the office of the county recorder or registrar of titles, or both, if the plat contains both nonregistered and registered property. An exact transparent reproducible copy shall, at the discretion of the county recorder or registrar of titles, be provided to the county recorder or registrar of titles, or both, if the plat contains both nonregistered and registered property. The official plat shall be labeled "OFFICIAL PLAT" and any copy shall be labeled "copy." The official plat and any copy shall be placed under the direct supervision of the county recorder or registrar of titles, or both, if the plat contains both nonregistered and registered property and be open to inspection by the public. In counties having a full-time county surveyor who operates an office on a full-time basis, the exact copy may be placed under the direct supervision of the county surveyor and be open to inspection by the public. Upon request of the county auditor of the county wherein the land is situated, the county recorder or registrar of titles shall cause a reproduction copy of the official plat, or of the exact copy, to be made and filed with the county auditor, at the expense of the county.
