Archive File - Kew, City of ~ Management

From the Collection of Kew Historical Society Inc Level 1, Kew Court House 188 High Street Kew Victoria

Description
Kew in Victoria was declared a City in 1921, and remained so until it was amalgamated into the City of Boroondara in 1994. This is a single large archive file, primarily comprised of Kew Council documents, a number of which date from an earlier period. Interesting early primary sources include: 1914 Amendments to the Local Government Act of 1903 [copy owned by Mr W.J. Muntz C.E.]; a Cleansing Contract [for the removal of night-soil] (1913); an Annual Statement of Accounts (1923); and By-Law No.66 (1939) [relating to the “Erection Construction and Removal of Buildings, Advertising Signs, Etc.”; and the Councillor’s Handbook (1939). In addition to these, later publications relate to Financial Statements (1986, 1987, 1988); Model Local Laws (1989); a Municipal Emergency Management Plan (1990); Mobile Bin Recycling Trial (1991); a School Project Kit (1991-2); and Committee Minutes (1992). There are also a number of newspaper articles/clippings on Council management issues
