Long Beach, CA - In recent days, there have been questions from the public about a records destruction item on the Tuesday, June 16, 2020 City Council agenda. This item was placed on the agenda by the Office of the City Clerk as a routine destruction of records. Each City department follows a records retention schedule that is in compliance with California Secretary of State guidelines and approved by the City Council. The Office of the City Clerk works with each department to ensure compliance with these retention schedules and routinely places resolutions of records destruction on City Council agendas. At the request of the Long Beach Police Department, their department records destruction item was removed from Tuesday’s agenda.
