Records Management

Archives 

Operating out of the former bus garage at Watkins Glen Central School District, the shared document facility houses the records of the county, the school district, two towns, one village and two contract agencies. The facility houses over 5,600 cubic feet of records and over 575 rolls of microfilm. Information dating back to 1854 is stored in this state of the art facility. Records management has been fortunate to receive over $600,000 in grant funding to accomplish many projects, with no local costs to the taxpayer. Some include:
 
  • Shared Document Facility
  • Microfilming permanent records
  • Microfilming long term retention items
  • Funding for shelving units for the facility

Mission Statement


Maximize service to inter-municipal partners and the general public through secure storage, quick retrieval in inactive records, responsible destruction of obsolete records and the preservation of permanent and archival records.
