This series consists of minutes of meetings of the Hawke's Bay Regional Council. The minutes provide a legal framework for the operation of the Council and underpin all other records kept.
They are arranged in meeting date order, all the pages are numbered and there is a separate set of indexes for all volumes up to 2000. Meetings were run as formal committee meetings with notices of motion moved, seconded and voted on.
The books include minutes of council committees as well as the ordinary meetings.
