The Tax Map Department maintains a detailed map of over 33,000 separate real estate parcels in Crawford County.  This map is continually updated to reflect changes in property ownership.  The tax map is used by the County Auditor to assess property taxes and is the basis for the GIS Mapping System.
All surveys and legal descriptions for property transfers in Crawford County are reviewed by the Tax Map Department to ensure that they meet Crawford County Transfer and Conveyance Standards, Crawford County Subdivision Regulations, and State of Ohio Minimum Standards for Boundary Surveys.
The Tax Map Department also assists the public with locating property and verifying ownership, and assigns all new property addresses in unincorporated areas of Crawford County.
The Highway Department consists of 16 personnel that handle all things relating to maintenance and safety along Crawford County roadways.
