4 microfilm reelsSkip to Containers

These records are housed in the Utah State Archives' permanent storage room.

Scope and Content

This series consists of microfilm of minutes kept by the Aurora City Council. The records prior to 1982 are Town Board Minutes. This series documents the decision making process of the municipal council of Aurora, providing a historical record of the decisions of the municipal government and, consequently, a history of the major events in the community. The minutes include information such as the names of the persons present at the meeting; time, date, and place of meeting; roll call vote results; lists of expenditures; motions made; and decisions made by the municipal government. Topics include approval of payment of bills, approval of budgets, approval of appointments to municipal jobs, proposed ordinances, provision of public works, and any other matter of immediate concern to the community. Additional documents, primarily correspondence with the Utah Road Commission, are inserted into the volumes.

Arrangement

Chronological by date of meeting.

On the second reel of film, the April 1979 - October 1981 segment was filmed in reverse order (approximately).

Research Note

In volume 1, pages 189-194 are missing; however, there does not seem to be an actual gap in the records. This may be a page numbering error in the original. The minutes for 26 Apr 1979 through 13 Oct 1981 are out of sequence, though roughly approximating reverse chronological order. This block of records is the second item on reel 2.

Access Restrictions

This series is classified as Public.
