Records management is the ensuring that public records created and received while conducting public business are retained and not destroyed unless it is in accordance with Michigan law.
The City Clerk is custodian of all papers, documents and records pertaining to the City of New Buffalo, the custody of which is not otherwise provided for (City Charter, Section 4.6(b), in-part.)
The City Clerk is responsible for keeping all records of the City in a manner prescribed by law, e.g., Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA.) The City Clerk is the City's FOIA Coordinator. If you would like to see public record you are welcome to come to City Hall during regular office hours. If you would like a copy of a public record let us know and we will assist you.
The City Clerk will be working collaboratively with City management to create and implement a public records sharing program whereby records available and of interest to the public get posted and shared electronically on the City's website.
