City Engineer's reports

Series consists of the City Engineer's set of his reports to the Board of Works (1906-1956) and to the Board of Administration (1956-1959) on works matters. As of 1936 water matters were also included (because the Board of Works took over from City Council's Water Committee). The reports seek approval for recommendations pertaining to proposed, e.g., local improvements, lot clearing, sewer construction, water main repair, street and lane improvements, garbage collection, gas main installation, etc. Reports were signed as adopted by the secretary of the Board of Works. Each volume up to 1945 includes an index. Arranged chronologically.
