DESTROYING PUBLIC RECORDS

Posted by xaviervir on May 15, 2010

What’s going on here? Public records are being destroyed at City Hall.  Is there something in those records that the City Council doesn’t want the public to see?

The following is an e-mail sent by Shelby to the City Council and City Manager.  They have not responded.

Subject: public records and meetings

To:  Councilpersons and City Manager:
There have been numerous requests approved by the city council to destroy public records.  These records are the property of the people of San Pablo and part of our history.  I request a permanent ban on the destruction of our public property.  Please respond as to what your vote will be on the May 17th Agenda and how a permanent ban can be accomplished.  You need not reiterate what you may do under the law.  I want to know what you shall do to protect the interests of the people.
Also:There are numerous commissions and meetings that are never posted on the city web site.  These are public events.  Why aren’t they posted?  It gives the appearance  of the city not wanting the people to participate.  Not good.  I await your response.
Regards, Shelby
