On February 18, 1850 the County of Los Angeles was established as one of the 27 original counties. In 1852, the Legislature created a five-member Board of Supervisors to govern the County. State law mandates that all minutes of the Board of Supervisors meetings be permanently maintained by the Executive Officer-Clerk of the Board of Supervisors, and that copies of the minutes and other documents are available to the public, other agencies and County departments upon request.
The Customer Service Center/Records Management Section maintains a full and complete record of the proceedings of each meeting held by the Board of Supervisors, as well as all other assessment and taxing districts, agencies and authorities for which the Board acts.
All records enacted by the Board prior to 1985 require archival assistance for their retrieval. These records must be researched. For record requests prior to 1985 call (213) 974-1424. The County's Auditor-Controller has set a rate of $.75 per search request, $.03 per page, and $1 per certification including mailing as a reasonable County fee for providing these services.
