The county recorder of the county in which the property of a surety on a recognizance is located, shall keep and file in the official records all notices of lien and notices of discharge that are filed with the county recorder pursuant to section 2937.26 of the Revised Code. When a lien has been released or discharged for a period of one year, the county recorder may destroy all notices of such lien. The county recorder may use any nonpaper electronic or magnetic medium specified in section 9.01 of the Revised Code to record the notices of lien and the notices of discharge. If the county recorder wishes to dispose of paper versions of the notices because they are no longer needed in that format, the county recorder shall request the county records commission to revise the county's schedule of records retention and disposal in accordance with section 149.38 of the Revised Code to provide for the disposal of those paper records.
