Under New Jersey law, it is the legal mandate of the Municipal Clerk to act as the legal custodian of all municipal records as per N.J.S.A. 40A:9-133c(6). Pursuant to this mandate, the Municipal Clerk has assigned the Records Management Unit, which shall be supervised by the Records Manager acting as the direct reporting agent of the Municipal Clerk in matters pertaining to public records and documents and the preservation, disposal and retention of same.

The Records Management Unit is thus mandated to deal with matters of records retention and storage (whether they are hard copy or electronic copy), destruction (coordinated with approval with the New Jersey Division of Archives and Records Management) as well as working on material and projects involving historical preservation.
