Abstract: Records from the city manager's office consist primarily of correspondence with officials of other municipalities, state agencies, city council members and other city officers, and contractors and suppliers with which the city did business; reports of city departments and officials; research materials; near-print reports and bulletins; and budget preparation materials. The records cover a wide range of topics including the city budget, city services and public works, the administration and efficient operation of the city government, planning, the relationship between the city government and public utilities, and zoning. Most of the records are from the tenure of Douglas Weiford, 19571967, with only scattered materials from the early 1950.
