Local Government Records Services: Landing Page

Local Government records management services are extended to all local governmental entities in Nevada. These services are intended to provide guidance on a full range of records management issues and services. Local Government Retention Schedules are not meant to be utilized by Nevada State agencies.  Please go to the State Records Services page of the NSLAPR website to find state agency retention schedules.

Local Government Records Retention Schedules

Records retention schedules are determined by the record type and the business, legal and compliance requirements associated with the record. Retention schedules establish guidelines regarding how long important records must remain accessible for future use or reference, as well as when and how the record can be destroyed when it is no longer needed. If a record does not have a retention schedule it must be kept indefinitely.

These Retention Schedules are for LOCAL GOVERNMENT AGENCIES ONLY.  Please go to the States Records Services page for more information about records retention for state agencies.
