Town of Mount Pleasant Awarded Local Government Records Management Improvement Fund (LGRMIF) Grant, Limited Building Records During Project Implementation

As communicated earlier this year, the Town of Mount Pleasant was awarded the Local Government Records Management Improvement Fund (LGRMIF) by the New York State Archives, a total of $74,890. This grant will pay to digitize older Building Department records, documents from approximately 1960 to 1975. This project will not only create greener management practices but also a more efficient and timely means to provide information to the public i.e. accessing records, streamlining the FOIL process, etc.

Beginning on August 15, 2022, Building records from approximately 1960 to 1975 will not be readily available as they will be offsite for scanning. If residents have urgent requests and are unable to wait for the records to be processed/returned, requests can be fulfilled by the scanning vendor for a fee of $17. The Town is confident that the long-term benefits of this project outweigh the short-term inconvenience. For questions about the LGRMIF grant or the project implementation, please contact the Supervisor’s Office. If you have questions about FOILs, please contact the Town Clerk’s Office.
