This series contains a complete set of minute books for the Rangitikei County Council for 1877-1989. The minutes are a record of decisions reached on financing the Council’s work, correspondence received from outside organisations and people, the initial hiring of staff, reports on work undertaken and demands from the public and complaints dealt with. They provide a legal framework for the operation of the Council and underpin all other records kept. They are arranged in meeting date order. Meetings were run as formal committee meetings with notices of motion moved, seconded and voted on.
Card indexes are available for 1932-1978.
