Register of Deeds Office Warns of Inflated Records Costs by For-profit Vendors

May 30, 2024 - MoCo Gov.

MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Tenn. – Homeowners in Montgomery County have been contacting the County Register of Deeds Office about letters they have received from a “Clerk’s Property Office” with a Nashville, Tennessee address. The letter requests that consumers send a check or money order to a Clerk’s Office in St. Petersburg, Florida. The purpose of these letters is to make money, ($89 on average), for info that is free or less than $1 at your local Register of Deeds Office. While the letter may or may not contain accurate information regarding an individual’s property and contains a disclosure reading it is not endorsed, affiliated, or approved by a government agency and is not from a government agency and a copy of your deed may be obtained from your local county office for free or a lesser charge, it is important to note the correspondence is not from the Montgomery County Register of Deeds’ Office. 

“Our Office has a FREE Fraud Alert service at, to assist with the early detection of property and mortgage fraud. We encourage our residents to sign up for this service especially since fraud comes in many forms. For example, identification impersonation can happen when someone steals your identity and uses it to transfer the property title to themselves or the impersonation is used to borrow money against a property. We want you to be protected. Signing up for the service is one way to help protect yourself and your property,” said Register of Deeds Julie Chadwick Runyon.

The Property Fraud Alert notification service alerts subscribers via email or text each time a document is recorded with their name on it. While this program cannot prevent fraud, it allows property owners an opportunity to take the appropriate actions early should they determine they have been the victim of possible fraudulent activity. 

“It is important to know that if a document meets the state’s recording requirements, my office is legally mandated to record it. That is why I am making every effort to educate Montgomery County residents about the potential threats and encourage Montgomery County residents to sign up for the free Fraud Alert service. While I cannot prevent fraud, I can work to help protect our people by deterring it,” added Runyon.


Please contact the Register of Deeds Office at 931-648-5713 or [email protected] for questions or a copy of your deed for anyone who can provide an address or the recording reference. The Register of Deeds team is here to assist the residents of Montgomery County.

Intergovernmental Support Agreement between Fort Campbell and Montgomery County Renewed through 2034

May 29, 2024 - MoCo Gov.

MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Tenn. – A 10-year Intergovernmental Support Agreement (IGSA) was signed between Montgomery County Mayor Wes Golden and Fort Campbell Garrison Commander Colonel Christopher Midberry on Tuesday, May 28. The new agreement replaces the 2019 agreement that made Montgomery County Animal Care and Control (MCACC) responsible for the operation of Fort Campbell's Stray Animal Program.

“This 10-year agreement is a testament to the hard work of our County’s Animal Shelter under the leadership of Director Dave Kaske. He has an incredibly dedicated team and opportunities like this solidify their commitment to the community and Montgomery County Government’s continued commitment to Fort Campbell,” stated Mayor Golden. 

“We’ve been extremely pleased with our partnership with Montgomery County Animal Control, so we decided to make the 10-year deal. IGSAs are an indicator of just how interdependent we are with our surrounding communities. These relationships are important and help us to focus on our primary mission,” said Col. Midberry.

Implementing the IGSA resulted in approximately a 30 percent cost reduction per year to Fort Campbell. It provided MCACC with payment for services, additional personnel, vehicles, and supplies for the Fort Campbell location.

The IGSA with MCACC was the first agreement for Fort Campbell. They now have four additional IGSA agreements, one with Austin Peay State University and three with the City of Hopkinsville. The agreements save Fort Campbell millions of dollars and generate revenue for the entities that choose to partner with them.

Montgomery County Highway Department Hosts Groundbreaking Event

May 21, 2024 - MoCo Gov.

MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Tenn. – Approximately 130 people attended the Montgomery County Highway Department’s groundbreaking event on May 20 to celebrate the official construction of the new administrative and maintenance buildings, expected to be complete by late spring of 2025 at 1213 Highway Drive.

Leading the ceremony was County Highway Supervisor Jeff Bryant who recognized the state delegates, elected officials, Highway Department employees, retirees, and all who came out to be a part of the occasion.

“This is a huge day for this department, it’s the beginning of something new and something to move forward in the future with. We have a big job maintaining and repairing all county-owned roads and bridges encompassing over 750 miles of road and almost 150 bridges. The new facilities will help us better take care of our equipment, not just for our department but for the County as we maintain a county-wide fleet program,” said Bryant.

“It’s been a journey getting to this day and it started with a conversation with former Mayor Jim Durrett. He was on board and I quickly reached out to Daniel Binkley with Rufus Johnson & Associates,” he added. 

Bryant explained that it took a lot of iterations and along with the architect came to the realization it was going to take more land to accomplish their objective. Due to collaboration with the City of Clarksville and Clarksville-Montgomery County School System leadership, the Highway Department obtained more land, providing a better layout and flow.

Bryant thanked Montgomery County Mayor Wes Golden and the County Commissioners for their continued support.
Mayor Golden spoke next, recognizing Senator Bill Powers and Representative Jeff Burkhart for attending and thanking all the local state delegates for the funding support of County Highway projects. 

“If anyone has ever toured that building it’s easy to understand why this is needed. We are going to try to bring these folks out of 1960 and put them in a present-day environment. It’s not just about the building, we are asking more out of the Highway Department than ever before. We’re growing at a fast rate and we’re trying our best to keep up. I appreciate our Highway Department employees,” said Mayor Golden

County Commissioner Ricky Ray who is also part of the Highway Committee said, “I can speak for a lot of the commissioners. When this came up we felt it was time and that something needed to be done. A lot of people don’t realize how much you (Highway Department employees) do on the roads. We’re thankful for you and we’re going to make this happen. 

The group walked to the groundbreaking site where they took the ceremonial shovels and moved the dirt as a symbol of the project getting underway.

The design team is led by Daniel Binkley, an architect with Rufus Johnson & Associates, and Alex Henry with TTL on civil design. Rock City is the general contractor out of Franklin, led by Mike Morgan.
