State Archives and Public Records to consolidate services in Middlesex

first_imgSecretary of State Deb Markowitz announced today that the Redstone offices of the Vermont State Archives and Records Administration (VSARA) will be moving to the record center on Route 2 in Middlesex.  The move, which will occur during the week of March 9th, is part of an ongoing effort to consolidate and improve the services of VSARA. Last year the legislature passed a law that transferred the functions of the Public Records Division to the Archives Division of the Secretary of State s Office, said Markowitz.  This creates a single, professional voice for advising agencies on the management of their records from point of creation to final disposition, thus increasing efficiency and improving service.During this transition, some disruption in services is anticipated.  On March 9th and 10th, limited notary and administrative procedure act services will be available at Redstone, but the reference room will be closed.  The Middlesex vital records services will be open on a limited basis on the 9th and 10th.  Both operations will be closed from Wednesday, March 11th until Monday, March 16th. Certain records, including legislative committee, gubernatorial, surveyor general, and Manuscript Vermont State Papers records will remain at Redstone until new vault facilities are completed at Middlesex.  These records are available for review by appointment only by calling (802) 828-2308.For more information about the services provided by the Vermont State Archives and Records Administration, visit our website at http://vermont-archives.org/(link is external)Source: Vermont Secretary of Statelast_img read more
