STATEWIDE — Earlier this month, the New York State Archives awarded $4 million in Local Government Records Management Improvement Fund (LGRMIF) grants to over 70 municipalities, agencies and school districts to help improve records management systems and better serve the public.

In Saratoga County, the Town of Clifton Park, Milton Fire District #1 and the Saratoga Springs City Center reportedly received a total exceeding $155,000 for file and inactive records management.

Board of Regents Chancellor Betty A. Rosa added: “Records are a key element in civic engagement, public service and government accountability. These grants support the management of gov- ernment records so these documents are available and accessible to future generations.”
