City Council approves record-keeping

August 4, 2005

The Basehor City Council approved Monday night a new policy regarding the retention and destruction of audio records from weekly meetings.

A week ago, City Council members tabled a proposed policy so minor revisions could be made.

Monday night, with the revisions complete, council members unanimously approved the measure.

The policy approved closely resembles one considered a week ago, which outlines the procedures regarding the taping of meetings, the destruction of those recordings and the material's availability to the public in compliance with the Freedom of Information Act.

The city developed its procedure concerning its meeting records at the advice of the Kansas League of Municipalities.

The advice proved of special concern to the city, which had a backlog of 20 years worth of audio recordings of meetings.
