NORWICH – Crammed into overstuffed vaults, piled in garages with leaking roofs and completely unorganized are just some of the terms officials are using to describe how the county’s records are stored.

“We have a real piecemeal way of dealing with records management,” Chenango County Clerk Mary Weidman told lawmakers this week.

At the request of Safety & Rules Committee Vice Chairperson Janice O’Shea, R-Coventry, Weidman will embark upon an inventory assessment of each department’s records in order to determine if they would be better accumulated and kept stored in the cells at the old, former jail.

“It (the jail) would be economical, close and accessible,” she said. As part of her assessment, Weidman said she would also train department managers about developing a plan for both purging and maintaining the “overwhelming” amount of paperwork generated.
