Since 1987 the Weber County Surveyor’s Office has maintained a register of records of survey plats for survey’s performed within Weber County which have been filed with the County Surveyor’s Office per Utah Code 17-23-17.
All professional land surveyors who perform work to “identify boundaries” within Weber County are responsible to file a record of survey plat in the County Surveyor’s Office within 90 days of performing the survey. Federal Agencies, State Agencies, Municipalities, etc. are not exempt from this requirement.
The record of survey filing fee is:
- $30.00 per page when AutoCAD dwg file provided by surveyor
- $40.00 per page when AutoCAD dwg file not provided
All surveys submitted to the Weber County Surveyor’s Office to be placed on file are screened per county code 45-3-2. The County Surveyor's Office screening checklist can be downloaded here. This screening is intended to identify what required elements of county code and state law, for filing record of survey plats, have been met.
The screening by the County Surveyor’s Office does not relieve the licensed land surveyor who executed the plat from the responsibilities and/or liabilities associated therewith and no attempt will be made to review or police the content, accuracy, or opinions expressed in the survey itself. Within ten (10) business days of a record of survey plat being submitted to the County Surveyor's Office for filing, it will be placed on file in the County Surveyor’s Office and will be added to our interactive GIS map. The screening process will usually takes between one and five days.
