The Records Management Division safeguards records of permanent importance to the City, its citizens, and future generations through its microfilm, digitization and record storage operations. The division assists citizens and city staff by ensuring that proper procedures are followed for records retention, timely retrieval, and secure disposition, in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. The division also maintains a collection of primarily twentieth-century historical records and provides research assistance to city departments and the general public.
City of Charleston policy requires that a legal representative coordinate all document and information requests. Please note that any requests made directly to the Records Management Division will be forwarded to the Corporation Counsel Division.
