Retention Schedules

Retention Schedules:

Retention Schedules (RC-2s) mandate how long a records series is required to be retained, detail what format a record series is created in, and indicate what disposal forms are required to be completed when non-permanent records have met their retention period. The Licking County Records Commission is statutorily charged (Ohio Revised Code 149.38) with approving RC-2s as submitted by the County Records and Archives Manager. Once approved in an open meeting, as required by ORC 121.22, RC-2s are sent to the Ohio History Connection and the State Auditor’s office for official approval. Below are the most recent retention schedules for each department* as approved by the Licking County Records Commission. If you have any questions, please contact Records and Archives Manager Corinne Johnson by phone (740)-670-5122, or email (ATTN Corinne Johnson).

*Please note that Court Records are governed by the Rules of Superintendence. A court may establish retention schedules for any records not listed in Sup. R. 26.01 to 26.05 and may extend, but not limit, the retention period for any record listed in Sup. R. 26.01 to 26.05.
