Click a category below to browse the database.
In order to fully utilize the Laserfiche database pop-up blockers must be disabled in all browsers.
Using the database:
To browse documents, click on browse. Continue opening folders until you find the document you are looking for.
To view the document, click to open.
Laserfiche documents are scanned to an image format which can be indexed and searched on-line. Printing these documents requires that the pages be converted to PDF format.
To search for a document using a specific word or phrase, click on search . This will provide you with complete directions on the two basic types of searches that can be performed via Weblink.
To print, save, and/or scroll through a document, you must convert to PDF first. Click on the PDF icon to the right of the page navigation bar to start the process.
You may then print or scroll through the document. Pages can be printed one at a time or as a complete document. Some of our documents are very large; we have set a limit of 100 pages per download. The system can convert up to 100 pages to PDF at one time. If a document is more than 100 pages, the conversion will create multiple PDFs. This process will be slower than a regular print function as the conversion to PDF takes a few seconds for each page.
The City Clerk's Office is continually working to expand the number of documents on-line. Please contact the City Clerk's office at 310-318-0656, if you have any questions.
