The Ingham County clerk’s office is relying on thousands of paper records after IT personnel accidentally deleted electronic data late last month.
WKAR has learned that on May 25, technicians deleted expired electronic records in the Register of Deeds' computer system. Later they discovered the operation took out more than 130,000 records maintained by county clerk Mike Bryanton. Those include campaign finance data, births, deaths and weapons permits.
Bryanton downplays the impact on daily county business.
