Multiple google-site-verification files on one site

I recently took over a corporate website. The person that managed Google Analytics has left. It appears that the way that the team has dealt with it is to create multiple IDs for gaining access. There are 4 google-site-verification.html files on the server. Does it make sense that we condense it down to one so that we are all pulling the same data? If so, how do I find out whom the ids are associated with? How do I take over management?

Hey Nancy, how are things?

If I'm not mistaken, those files are related to Google Search Console and not Google Analytics. Those are files that google uses to verify ownership of the website.
