  • Function / Content
    This series consists of minutes of meetings held by South Gippsland Water Board (VA 2677).

    Minutes related to a wide range of activities for which the Water Board was responsible. Minutes of meetings of Waterworks Trusts and Water and Sewerage Boards were created in accordance with section 212 of the Water Act 1890 (no. 1156) and subsequent legislation including the Water Acts of 1905 (No. 2016), 1958 (no. 6413) and 1989 (No. 80). These Acts required that for each meeting, minutes of all proceedings be recorded together with the names of all commissioners present that voted for and against motions. Bound volumes of minutes often included the minutes of annual, ordinary and special meetings, and associated business papers.

    Business papers comprised meeting agenda and reports to the Board. Typical agenda items were:
    - Letters received and sent,
    - Accounts for payment,
    - Reports of Officers,
    - Superintendent/Clerk of Works,
    - Plumbing Inspector,
    - Secretary/Manager,
    - Engineer,
    - Matters under investigation,
    - Tenders,
    - Order of the day, and
    - General Business

  • Recordkeeping System
    Minutes of meetings were arranged in chronological order by date of meeting.

    Indexes were in some cases created for minutes. Where created these are found at the beginning of the volumes that they index
