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.
