Municipal Schedules to be Removed in Update 4/4

February 7, 2017

Listed here are municipal financial retention schedules to be overwritten by the new financial schedules approved December 8th by the State Records Committee. If a retention schedule is overwritten by an updated schedule, it will be hyperlinked to the new schedule on our website.

The State Auditor’s Office also reviewed the schedule before it was seen by the State Records Committee. We hope this schedule will make the retention of many financial records simpler to manage.

Please update your records so the updated retention will be followed from this point going forward. Below is the updated schedule, then the schedules being removed from the  general retention schedule. If you have any questions, please call us at 801-531-3863.
