The Surveyor checks and approves subdivisions, land partitions, property line adjustments and condominiums, as well as surveying county owned land and roads.  The Surveyor is responsible for the recovery, restoration and preservation of public land corners; i.e. section corners, quarter corners and donation land claim corners.   In addition to being the Coos County Surveyor, Mike is also the Coos County Land Agent.  That service involves working with Tax Foreclosed Properties, cleaning them, tearing them down, getting them ready for auction and hosting our annual auction.  

When Mike is not at work, he is usually writing music, playing guitar/banjo or singing in his band Caught Red Handed.  He loves living on the Oregon Coast, you might see him at the beach, around town or up on stage, make sure to say hello.

Coos County Survey Resource System is a searchable system that Coos County provides to look up/upload and document all Surveys/Plats/Books/GCDB & Road Atlas's filed in our County.  This system is accessible by a yearly subscription only.  This system is mostly for the professionals, we have all the local surveyors, realtors, title companies, etc. that use this system regularly.  The fee is $300 a year (your year begins at the date of purchase and gives your entire office unlimited access to printable pdf's).  Most people are just needing a copy of a survey for your property, just give us a call, we can look it up for you, if one has been done.  Not all properties have them, it is not required to survey property in order to buy or sell property, although it is a smart option to add in to your negotiations.  We can email surveys to you, along with an invoice for this service, they are $5 each.  We look forward to assisting you with your needs. 

*We do not survey private owned land, we can provide a list of local surveyors to help you with your needs, make sure to call around and find a quote that works with your budget.


Contact the Surveyor's Office to request your access to our Research System.  We can provide access the same day for your convenience.  Good to use in the office or on the go.
