CLAREMORE —

 The site shows the public that the assessor’s office is using more information to make the best assessments, according to Marsh.
Only one other county in the state offers this functionality, according to Williston.
“I look it as a good economic tool to bring business into the county,” Williston said.
“The website also provides a tool for transparency as anyone can use the site from the comfort of their own home,” Williston said.
The data is searchable with a number of easily customizable reports, according to Williston. This includes the ability to research comparable sales throughout properties in Rogers County. Currently the website, wwww.rogerscounty.org,  receives more than 200,000 hits per month, according to Williston. The site’s heaviest users are land developers, abstract offices, insurance companies and real estate professionals.
“The site is a great tool to attract development to Rogers County,” Williston said.
