Scope and Content

This series contains records documenting the process of financing large municipal projects, particularly water and power systems. These projects include the construction of a "water works system" in 1911-1912, the creation and operation of an "electric power system" in 1921-1922, and "replacing, extending, repairing, and improving" the town water system in the mid-1930's. The first two projects involved bonding, but the improvement project for the water system in the 1930's also included a PWA loan for the project.

The records in the series include minutes of town board meetings in which the bonds or loans were discussed, ordinances and resolutions adopted to authorize bonding or application for a loan, along with a few other bond related documents. The minutes and ordinances found in this series were filed separately from other minutes and ordinances, so they may represent the only copy of those documents. The series also includes some records related to the acquisition of water rights and other miscellaneous documents.


Generally chronological by date of document.
