Residents can now access county records and services from their home and office computers rather than waiting in line at government centers, officials announced this week.
GovernLink, a new Web site that links county and municipal government offices, allows individuals to receive government records, including fictitious business names; satisfy regulatory requirements; pay delinquent fees and fines; apply for licenses and permits; and access birth, death and marriage certificates.
"Orange County is pleased to be the first local government in the country to offer this service to its residents," Clerk-Recorder Gary L. Granville said.

The service is offered by Lockheed Martin in partnership with Oracle Corp.
