Records

The City Clerk manages city records and documents according to Minnesota Statutes regarding records retention and data practices ensuring resident access to public information in a timely fashion. Information maintained by the city is public, unless there is a specific statutory designation that gives it a different classification.

The city of New Hope has adopted the State General Records Retention Schedule to ensure all records of city business are kept as long as they have administrative, fiscal or historical value in compliance with Minnesota Statutes. To assist in managing the large volume of records, the city has been building an electronic repository of digital city records. Individuals can access this repository through Laserfiche.

For questions about city records, contact the City Clerk’s office at 763-531-5117.
