OLD Borough On The Record

A discussion of open and efficient government


Archives was developed to demonstrate the many advantages of digitizing and fully processing public records.  We include documents from the Borough of Allendale and its neighboring municipalities.  Our techniques can be applied to any municipality or organization.

Allendale Archives – the fully processed records from Allendale

Neighboring Archives – original documents from Allendale and its neighbors

Audio File – our collection of audio recording of public meetings since 2010

Processing our Files – how we process the files added to our Archives

Where Do You Begin? – a checklist for developing your own Archives

Public records, but not official records.  The documents included in Archives are public government records.  They have been gathered from public bodies (e.g., Governing Body, Planning Board, Board of Adjustment, et al).  The Open Public Records Act (OPRA) is the legal foundation that makes these documents available to the public.

The files provided here are for reference purposes only.  While we have collected these documents from official municipal sources, please do not consider them official documents.  Please contact the respective municipal Records Custodian (i.e., the Municipal Clerk) for access to official public records.
