April Town Hall Closure for Records Management
April is National Records management Month! It’s a time to recognize the importance of keeping public records available to the public, making sure they are easily accessible, and disposing of them properly when they are no longer needed.Every day, the Town of Woodway generates many new records in many formats: paper, electronic, audio recordings, photographs, and more.To comply with Washington State’s detailed records retention requirements, depending on the content of the record, it may need to be retained for a few years –or in perpetuity. Keeping track of all this information, and making sure it’s accessible, is a monumental task.
To celebrate, Records Management Month, Town Hall will be closed April 25, 29, & 30. During this time, staff will be working hard to assess the Town’s archived records, determine how long they need to be kept, and dispose of them according to the State requirements. We appreciate your understanding of the office closure for this very important work.
