General Records Retention Schedules for Municipalities

Records Retention Schedules show how long records must be retained based on administrative, fiscal, and legal requirements, as well as their historical value. General Records Retention Schedules list records that are common to many government offices. The record series are grouped by function rather than office. Most offices will use multiple records retention schedules for their records.

Municipal agencies that are part of the Municipal Records Management Program:

  • Towns 
  • Cities 
  • Boroughs 
  • Districts 
  • Other political subdivisions of the state 
  • Certain quasi-public agencies

If you have records that you cannot locate on any records retention schedule, contact the Office of the Public Records Administrator.
