Series consists of bound council minutes that record council motions related to by-laws, communications, appointments as well as the establishment and regulation of committees and functions regarding parks, water, public transportation, civil defence, planning and assessment, and others.
The volumes are arranged chronologically. In most cases, two books were produced annually documenting meetings held between January and June and July and December. Meeting minutes from 1960 begin with Metro’s inaugural meeting held on November 1 of that year and continues to the end of June. An index can be found in the first book of a given year. With the exception of the 1963 minutes, each volume has a number printed on its spine. The first four volumes are assigned numbers I to IV. Beginning in 1964, each book documenting the period from January to June is annually identified as “book 1” and followed by “book 2” for the July to December period.
The records consist of one complete set of original and signed meeting minutes and one sub-series.
