The references above are only starting points for determining the retention, disposition, and access of public records in each city department. Program areas may have additional statutory and/or legal requirements to consider such as the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) or Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) which includes the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Other governance entities that may establish retention rules or limit access to public records include Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), or US Department of Labor. Check with your department's assistant city attorney if you're not sure what regulatory agency governs your programs.
