How does the City decide how long to keep its records?

The City of Durango has adopted the Colorado Model Municipal Records Retention Schedule (Resolution R-2007-0025 adopted by City Council on 6/19/2007). This schedule, which is available for you to search and use online, describes how long the various types of City records must be kept. It is current as of 3/22/2021.  The URL is https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/archives/municipal-records-retention-manual and for your benefit a single searchable 163-page PDF file of the entire Schedule is located here on the City’s website (the multi-page index is at the end of that document).
