Records Retention

Records retention is governed by the Retention and Disposition Schedule for New York Local Governments (LGS-1), issued pursuant to Article 57-A of the Arts and Cultural Affairs Law, as adopted by the City Council. Records Management works with departments in the preparation, transfer, and requested retrieval of materials from the City's Records Center. These records are not open to the public, but are accessible through Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) requests.
