By-laws

Forms part of Fonds 10. Series consists of all surviving by-laws for the Rural Municipality and City of St. Vital (1885-1971).* The earliest by-laws belong to the RM of St. Boniface, the predecessor and former name of St. Vital. By-laws passed by the Winnipeg Suburban Municipal Board, acting on behalf of St. Vital, appear from 1925 to 1927. Included in this series are schedules and other supporting documents as well as a set of indexes (1880-1971).

By-laws were pasted into volumes by the creator or attached to pages with tape or glue. By-laws often appear out of order as noted by the creator and, in a few instances, only copies are included. Series is arranged numerically (or chronologically by date of creation). All by-laws, except for those in volume 46, were kept in their original books.

*Includes by-laws 22 to 8738, not inclusive. Multiple by-laws, especially from 1885 to 1914, are missing. There is a significant jump in the numbering system from 2099 to 3000. For a more detailed description, see file list.

Subject Files

Forms part of Fonds 10. Series consists primarily of both incoming and outgoing correspondence created and maintained by the Rural Municipality and City of St. Vital. Files document communications and transactions between St. Vital and various parties (ie: residents, businesses, local clubs and associations, and other governments) as well as municipal administration and council business. Reports, agreements, briefs, petitions, town and building plans, and copies of minutes also appear in this series.

Series appears to have served as the central filing system for St. Vital. Most files created on the basis of subject or office of primary importance and arranged in alphabetical order. Large file groupings assembled on the Elm Park Bridge, Offers to Purchase, Province of Manitoba, Flood, Schools and Tenders as well as other records with a similar provenance were put back into this series. General correspondence with residents often filed by letter according to name of sender or recipient.

Recordkeeping appears haphazard with most files dating from the fifties and sixties and others going back to the twenties, possibly indicating previous appraisal(s). Files created after the City’s amalgamation in 1972 removed.

City Treasurer

Forms part of Fonds 10. Series consists of files belonging to Alan Gill that record his various activities and responsibilities as City Treasurer of St. Vital. Following the City’s creation, Gill was appointed Treasurer in July 1963. Prior to that date this role was carried out by the Secretary-Treasurer and, for a brief time, the City Clerk. Council passed by-laws 7800 and 7801 in June 1964 that appear to formalize the separation of Clerk and Treasurer. After amalgamation with the City of Winnipeg in 1972, the Community of St. Vital continued to maintain this filing series.

According to The Municipal Act, the duties of the treasurer were to receive and safely keep all moneys belonging to the municipality, and pay out those moneys to such persons and in such manner as provided in the Act, and as the by-laws or resolutions of the council direct. Responsible for financial management, the City Treasurer maintained accounts and generated financial information as a means of advising council and others on financial matters.

Series arranged into three groupings. Copies of reports appear first, followed by two correspondence series. The latter series has a distinct alpha-numerical filing system in which the letter signifies the subject (ie: A for Acquisition of Land) and the number signifies the order. Other subjects include capital projects, development agreements, estimates, land sales, levies and assessment, Metropolitan Corporation, planning proposals, school board and zoning. Records related to departmental finances, personnel and hospital accounts also appear throughout this series.
