Our One Trip Pledge
We, the employees of the Story County Treasurer's Office, are here to serve you.  We will do everything within our power to take care of your title work in one trip.  You can help us fulfill this pledge by carefully reviewing the Buyer's Checklist in the Treasurer Links section.

If you complete the five steps listed in the Buyer's Checklist, including the call (complete with the name of the person you spoke with), and you feel we failed to do everything in our power to complete your title transfer in one trip, I want to know about it.  I will personally travel anywhere in Story County to accommodate any citizen who failed to get the full measure of service they deserve.
