Archiving Project For County Records Underway

Archiving Project For County Records Underway

archivingPotter County has qualified for a joint federal/state program designed to help local governments organize and protect important records. The project, which will involve many county departments, gets underway this week. Commissioner Susan Kefover has agreed to serve as the point person. It’s part of a project being spearheaded by the Pennsylvania State Archives to assist county governments in archiving records and historical documents.

The Potter County Commissioners were awarded a grant that covers the costs for a professional archivist/records manager to work with elected officials, department heads and administrative personnel over an eight-week period on archiving, backing up and purging county records. A separate component of the project will be a workshop during which borough and township officials will be educated on record preservation.

Try again 4:48. Grant was approved last year and it was announced by Susan and the program was to start in June 2011. Let's see. What month is this?

ONE downfall is that BIG BROTHER will know what information you access that is public knowledge.

1. Scan them into computer
2. Put them in order by date,number, code, shoe size etc
3. Keep them in a safe place up off the floor in case it floods and where they can't catch fire
4. Keep them accessible.

They should be counting cars at Rt 6 & 872 and trying to get a traffic light which may safe lives.

And we wonder why spending is out of control.

Will the records manager be a new position (temporary?) or is this something that will be added to an exsisting county goverment employee?

To Anonymous who posted on 6/12 @ 11:48. Local governments should be organizing and protecting their records. There are Federal Laws surrounding the protection of all types of records whether they are public records, tax records, historical etc. There is more to it then scanning them into a computer and keeping them up off the floor. How long should records be kept before destroying? Can we scan the files in without damaging? Do we need to scan...do we back file or do with day forward? Kudos to Potter County for taking the initiative for perserving important and potentially vital records.

Oh please, what are they now? Unorganized in piles on the side of the building?

You make it sound as it they are storing antimatter.

Any Potter County housewife could do just about as good a job without sucking more money from my pocket.

I guess you missed the part about Federal Law?? Watch what you say because it sounds like you're a "male" probably not married because it seems like you don't think much of Potter County housewives.

Wrong on both counts. If I may, Potter County Housewives and Housewives in general are far more adept at organizing, keeping the house running in an efficient cost effective manner than any man could ever do. The objection was to the welfare grant, which you and I pay for.
If the 3 musketeers can’t figure out how to keep records in compliance with law, they should read the law themselves and apply it or admit they don’t know what they are doing and resign.
I, unlike you, object to groveling for every free money program that comes down the pike on the premise that it costs us nothing. Government by itself cannot give anything to anyone unless it takes something from someone else. It’s an immoral taking.
Why should every person in Pa and the US pay for an 8 week course on how to keep our records. How about a little personal and county responsibility.

For the love of Pete, it’s only record keeping, are we that inept we can’t do it ourselves?

Too funny! I guess all those Fortune 500 Companies pay the company I work for BILLIONS of dollars a year for us to assist in keeping their data/records safe don't know what they're doing either? So, for only eight weeks and a Federal grant Potter County got a deal! :)
