I have found the same inconsistancies. Some county records give me an actual list providing contact phone numbers. Others just a list of park names and parcel ID numbers. Which is all I really need to be able to find the info on the property.
I have even found some Assesment sites that will allow me to search by land use. I wish they all did this, then I wouldn’t have to “bother” any employee with my “trivial” request.
All in all though I have found assesment offices to be extremely helpful. So they will always be my first call.
Now that I think about it, maybe when I said “I’m looking to put a list together of all the MHPs in your county” she thought I was asking for an actual list (one county gave me a physical list in a word doc) not for them to search the database and pull just the parks out of it. So that I could compile my own list.
Just thinking out loud. Thanks for all the help.
