2 What is a public record under the Local Records Act? "Public record" means any book, paper, map, photograph, digitized electronic material, or other official documentary material, regardless of physical form or characteristics, made, produced, executed or received by any agency or officer pursuant to law or in connection with the transaction of public business and preserved or appropriate for preservation by such agency or officer, or any successor thereof, as evidence of the organization, function, policies, decisions, procedures, or other activities thereof, or because of the informational data contained therein. Library and museum material made or acquired and preserved solely for reference or exhibition purposes, extra copies of documents preserved only for convenience of reference, and stocks of publications and of processed documents are not included within the definition of public record. (Source: P.A , eff ) Are faxes, videos, s, and instant messages records, etc.? Yes, depending on the information contained in the fax, or instant message or the information recorded on the dvd, cd, video, or cassette tape. If the information fits the definition above it is a public record subject to the provisions of the Local Records Act regardless of the media the data is maintained in. We no longer maintain records simply on paper or on microfilm. Data can be stored on many types of media including cassette tapes, magnetic tapes, floppy disks, hard-drives, cd s, dvd s, etc. Effective January 1, 2001, the Local Records Act (50 ILCS 205) was amended to allow Local Government agencies to reproduce existing public records in a digitized electronic format with the intent to dispose of the original records. This practice is only allowable if the electronic records are reproduced on a "durable medium that accurately and legibly reproduces the original record in all details," and "that does not permit additions, deletions, or changes to the original document images." In addition, the digital records must be "retained in a trustworthy manner so that the records, and the information contained in the records, are accessible and usable for subsequent reference at all times while the information must be retained." Each agency is also under the obligation to file a Records Disposal Certificate with the appropriate Local Records Commission before any original record may be disposed of and before the reproduced digital record is disposed of.
3 How Can I Legally Dispose of Records? 1. Each agency must submit an Application for Authority to Dispose of Local Records to the appropriate Local Records Commission prior to the destruction of any record. (See sample Application in packet) 2. After the Application has been approved by the Local Records Commission it will become your agency s Records Retention Schedule. 3. You can then dispose of records after the minimum retention period listed for each record series is met, provided no litigation is pending or anticipated and providing all audit requirements (local, state, and federal) have been met and after your have submitted and received an approved Local Records Disposal Certificate from the appropriate Local Records Commission. 4. Disposal Certificates must be submitted to the Local Records Commission authorizing the destruction at least sixty (60) days before the date the agency wishes to dispose of the records per Section of the Illinois Administrative Code. 5. Under 720 ILCS 5/32-8. Tampering with public records. A person who knowingly and without lawful authority alters, destroys, defaces, removes or conceals any public record commits a Class 4 felony. (Source: Public Act ) 6. Who prepares the Application? A Local Records Unit field representative from the State Archives will inventory your agency s records for you at no charge to the agency and submit the Application to the Commission for your agency. 7. The Local Records field representative can also prepare your first Local Records Disposal Certificate for you at no charge and explain the procedures for preparing the Disposal Certificate. 8. If you already have a schedule and would like assistance in completing the disposal certificate, need to have additional record series added to your current application, or need a new application please call our office at (217) and ask to have an appointment scheduled with a field representative. 9. If you intend to microfilm your records, the Local Records Commission has established standards for microfilming. Copies of the standards for microfilming may be printed out from our web page. If you do not have access to the internet and need copies of the regulations please call our office at (217) and ask to have copies mailed to your office.
