Council Chambers, Legislative Bldg., 745 4th St., Sparks
Consent Items: 8.3
Title: Consideration and possible approval of the destruction/disposal of original building plans and associated documents that have been microfilmed (City Clerk's Office).
Petitioner/Presenter: Teresa Gardner, City Clerk/Carrie Brooks, Records Technician
Recommendation: City Council approve the destruction/disposal of original building plans, as requested.
Financial Impact: None
Business Impact (Per NRS 237):
A Business Impact Statement is not required. This is a rule but does not impose a direct and significant economic burden on a business, or directly restrict the formation, operation or exemption of a business.
Agenda Item Brief: Background:
NRS 239.051 allows for the destruction/disposal of original building plans and associated documents once they have been scanned and microfilmed in a manner that complies with the standards of quality approved by the American National Standards Institute, and that a copy of the film is stored in a manner that protects it reasonably from loss. Once the standards have been met, a reproduction of the film is considered an original. A list is attached of those items proposed for destruction/disposal.
NRS 239.124 directs local entities to follow the procedures they set forth under NRS 239.051, and any other procedures specifically authorized by the City Charter for disposal of any records. The Sparks City Charter does not address records disposal, therefore, NRS is followed.
The City Clerk's Office has followed the above procedures. Each roll of microfilm has been visually inspected for clarity and indexed for reference and retrieval purposes. Although these items have been microfilmed and the microfilm is considered the original, select items will be kept in paper form.
I move to approve the destruction/disposal of original building plans and associated documents that have been microfilmed.
