What is Records Management?

Records Management offers County departments and agencies storage, retrieval, and, if applicable, disposal of inactive documents. Secure and climate-controlled storage for electronic record media and microfilm is provided. Access to government records, when permitted by statute or regulation, is afforded to members of the public.



The Record Center is monitored around the clock by an alarm system and video surveillance. Fire hazard is minimized by a sprinkler system. Access to records is restricted.

Cost Savings

Storing inactive records in office spaces is expensive. Square-footage costs are lower in the Record Center. Costs are also reduced by regular disposition of obsolete records.


Records Management provides daily delivery and pickup of files to the City-County Building, the Andrew Johnson Building, and other facilities.
