Background and Discussion:

The Texas State Legislature has provided a means to raise revenue for the preservation of current and older county records. The County Clerk has taken advantage of the Archive Fee as an alternative to spending general fund monies to accomplish these preservation projects. Revenue collected and not expended in the fiscal year will be carried forward for use in future years. This plan will be updated annually as part of the budget process. Approval and implementation of the plan will continue to ensure the preservation of historical and current records for future generations.

 

 

Expected Impact:

The costs for the projects listed in the County Clerk’s Records Archive Plan FY 2022-2023 will come from the Records Archive Fund, not from the County Clerk’s General Fund. Projects listed in the Archives Plan are an ongoing, multi-year process and are reassessed annually and prioritized as necessary.

 

 

Alternative Options:

Alignment with Goal(s):

The County Clerk’s Office’s goal is to continue working towards complete digitization of all records, restoring and preserving the records as they are of historical value to Harris County. The Records Archive Plan contains the County Clerk’s records management and preservation projects and the County Clerk’s overall goals and vision.

                     Continue to eliminate or reduce searches of paper documents and expedite record searching by electronic retrieval.
