City official urges purge of records amid requests 

An Anaheim official has urged employees to purge old documents from city files and threatened disciplinary action if they fail to do so amid a barrage of records requests.

The Voice of OC ( ) reports that planning department official Hannah Jones sent an email last week telling employees that old documents that turn up in response to requests can "damage our credibility."

The nonprofit news agency says the email was sent after it filed a request for records of communications to and from members of the City Council.

The public employees' union has told workers not to destroy records until the district attorney's office determines whether the request is legal.

City Clerk Linda Andal says she interpreted the email as a reminder to manage records in line with city policy.
