This week the City Clerk’s Department launched the Records Center, a new online public portal where community members can go to easily access important city documents.
The Records Center, which can be found at www.sangabrielcity.com/RecordsCenter, is a significant step forward in the city’s ongoing effort to increase transparency and make government more accessible to residents. The online archive includes city resolutions and ordinances, along with agendas and minutes from City Council meetings.
So far, the City Clerk’s Department has scanned in decades of documents, with more still to be posted, creating a historical record of the city that is readily available. In the future, the department will add records from the city commissions as well. Ultimately, there will also be a mobile app that will allow users to easily access records on their cell phones.
The portal will also make it easier for residents to access the current City Council agendas, as they will be uploaded as individual items, rather than one large document, to improve download speeds.
Overall, the Records Center will greatly improve community access to city information and be a great resource for residents to connect with their city government. For questions or more information, contact Chief City Clerk Gloria Molleda at 626.308.2800, ext. 4601 or email@example.com.
