OCC provides consulting and training to City departments on records management systems, policies, standards and guidelines. OCC also inventories, transfers, stores, retrieves and retains records from City departments according to law.
OCC assists citizens wanting to serve on a board or commission, participate at a Council meeting, receive a proclamation and more. OCC provides services to those wanting petition validation, a liquor license and lobbyist registration.
