We are excited to introduce to you the City’s new Electronic Document and Records Management System (EDRMS) which is designed to store a wide range of electronic documents and file types. It offers the ability to save documents in a location that is secure, searchable, easy to use, and can manage the lifecycle of a document automatically (retention). It helps saves the employee(s) time in finding and accessing needed documents, easy to distribute documents throughout an organization and to the public if needed, reduces paper records filing costs, we are able to easily back-up documents in case of disaster (flood, fire, theft, etc.), and saves on the wear and tear of paper records. Currently, the public can find city code, all documents related to city council meetings, and ordinances/resolutions. We are in the beginning stages of this project, but hope to add more in the future. To look for a record please click on the Laserfiche logo which will allow you to browse or search for a document.

The Splash Pad at Pioneer Park is now open 7 days a week from 11:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. If you have any questions about the Splash Pad please call the City Office at (208)-523-5600.
