45-401. Public policy concerning government records. The legislature declares that state and local government records with enduring value should be stored in conditions which are not adverse to their permanent preservation and should be properly arranged so that appropriate public access to such records is possible. Disposition of noncurrent records which do not merit preservation will promote economy and efficiency in the day-to-day activities of government. Cooperation among agencies at all levels of government is necessary in order to achieve proper preservation of records with enduring value.

History: L. 1981, ch. 331, ยง 1; July 1.

Attorney General's Opinions:

Electronic mail (e-mail) may qualify as "public record" under KORA but e-mail between individual city commissioners, which is not made or maintained through city resources, is not a public record. 2002-1.

Fees collected by county treasurer for issuing registrations and certificates of title cannot be used for security cameras. 2008-11.
