Augusta, GA -

An Augusta Commissioner says the city needs to be serious about securing government documents.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) said this week there was no criminal activity by former Augusta City Administrator Fred Russell when he deleted documents from his city hard drive.

Commissioner Marion Williams called for the investigation and he now wants to know the city's procedure when it comes to government electronic records.

"What procedure we have in place, what kind of kind of records process we have in place? Even the GBI said they can't believe we don't have a backup system for all ourt stuff, all our documents. I'm in kind of agreement. How can we be an award winning I.T. Department and have no way of retaining that stuff," Williams said.

Commissioners are scheduled to discuss the document policy Tuesday.
Williams says he is considering going to the federal level for answers regarding the missing documents and says many people are upset about how documents are secured.
