Office of Records and Information

Connecting the City and Citizens through Public Information

The Office of Records and Information is responsible for the care and custody of all official records and documents for the City. Our goal is to maintain and provide prompt access to all legal and historical records. This division of the City Clerk's office provides for the efficient, economical, and effective controls over the creation, maintenance, disposition, and retention of all City records. Other responsibilities of this division include: Mail Center, Forms Management and Citywide Reception.

Most records are accessible via the City's Internet site through Irvine Quick Records. Anyone with access to the Internet has the ability to view, download, or print City records. An up-to-date reference of which documents are available through Irvine Quick Records can be found in What's in Quick Records.
