Obtaining Info & Records: Records Retention Schedule

The City of Berkeley’s Records Retention Schedule identifies records maintained by each department of the City.  Each schedule was prepared in consultation with individual departments.  We inventory City records and update the schedule with new information periodically.  The schedule identifies retention periods for each type of record and whether the record, based on retention criteria, is likely to be located in off-site storage. Please contact the City Clerk Department with any questions or assistance needed navigating the City’s Records Retention Schedule.
