Prince George's County website purge : Were records disposal laws followed?

Since the county's new website went online in July I have heard and received many critical comments about it, but not a single compliment.  Apparently, many pages were removed from the site.  I sent questions to county council members and records and legal officials on October 27, 2013, and will report any answers I receive.

  • To the extent that information was purged from the county website earlier this year, and is no longer available there, did the county IT staff comply with state laws and regulations related to disposal of electronic records?
  • Has the council conducted any oversight with respect to the records management or disposal issue?
  • If records disposal laws or regulations were not followed, what enforcement or corrective actions, if any, will be taken against the violators or to recover the records?
