Welcome to the new ImageSilo document archival system for the City of Hercules. This system lets you search for ordinances, City Council resolutions, and Redevelopment Agency resolutions, from 1983 to present. Please allow 1-2 weeks from the time an item is approved by the City Council to be posted. To view items not yet approved by the City Council, please visit the agendas and meeting minutes page.
If you need official copies of specific documents for legal purposes, please contact the City Clerk's Office at (510) 799-8215.
To view documents in ImageSilo, simply login with our public account. If it is not already there, type 6615 into the Entity ID field. Type public into the User Name field and click on the Login button. There is no need to enter a password.
