FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - State officials have moved thousands of boxes of state records into a new facility in Frankfort.
The move to the new State Records Center involved about 190,000 cardboard boxes to a new leased building.
The Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives says the move began in late April and was expected to take about three months. But instead it took just 38 working days.
The State Records Center provides high-volume, low-cost storage to state government agencies for records with a limited retention period or for permanent records that are still in use. They include court documents, adoptions files, police investigations and corrections records.
The department is also moving about 60,000 boxes of records from another rented facility to the new building.
