Destroying public records

City Editor Frank Girardot got this message from recalled City Councilman Jeff Siccama. We haven’t confirmed this information:

The Montebello City Council voted to destroy all records 7 years and older. This will cover up a lot of their handy work. Sounds like their new city attorney Arnold Glasman is taking care of loose ends as fast as possible.

    It’s my understanding that most public records only need to be kept for two years.

    Not really that unusual…Glendora recently approved the same destruction of public records.

    Not sure about the 2 year time limit, but I am sure it is probably legal.
