Source immédiate d'acquisition
Prior to 1920, all incoming correspondence was given its own file number, even when it pertained to a topic with an existing file number. The records were then housed with the pre-existing number and a placeholder card was used to indicate where the correspondence with the new number could be found. These cards are noted in the file list.
File numbers for the series were reset to 1 in 1911-1912 and again in 1920. The Legislation and Reception file numbers were continued by the Utilities and Personnel Committee alongside its own file numbers after that committee took over the personnel function. City Council and Utilities and Personnel minutes may reference LR (Legislation and Reception) or U (Utilities and Personnel) file numbers.
