Records Management

Records Management provides for consistent and efficient creation, organization, use, maintenance and disposition of City's records.  This assists in the overall administration of the City and in the timely response to public record act requests.

The Records Management program applies to all City Departments and was approved by City Council.   Resolution 2014-005 amends the Records Management Program Manual and Retention Schedule.  The manual and retention schedule are updated periodically.
