Hoboken City Hall Shredding Party

Hiding something? Hoboken City Hall Shredding Party

Dawn Zimmer Hoboken City Hall Shredding Party - Hoboken City Hall Shredding PartySeveral witness said that there was a massive Hoboken City Hall Shredding Party over the past week (and since the subpoenas were issued in Diary-Gate). Bags upon bags of shredded documents outside Mayor Dawn Zimmer’s office, as well as the law department. Interesting timing, eh?

That begs a few questions:

  • What are they trying to hide, destroy or cover up?
  • Isn’t there a minimum amount of time ALL city documents must be retained? Confidential or not?
  • What about the city’s electronic records? Isn’t there supposed to be off-site backups which cannot be deleted? When was the last time the state audited the city’s electronic data retention policy?

Wait, is that reason there by rhall? No way. Yup, just standard practice in every office (government or otherwise) in the world.

Shredding documents is a standard practice across both governments and business. My company holds an annual “document cleanup” which is run by our compliance and legal departments, where documents that are no longer required to be physically retained are shredded. Depending on the type of document, it needs to be retained for a certain # of years, and at the point it reaches expiration it is shredded (electronic records are kept longer). Otherwise, the sheer mass of physical documents is overwhelming and it becomes impossible to maintain organization of any kind. It is safe to assume that the city of Hoboken is no different than any other government or private office and follows this same annual process.
