Scope and Content

This series contains the newsletter published by the Salt Lake City Board of Commissioners. Issued monthly and distributed freely, the Municipal Record provided information on the City Commissioners, the various city departments, civic pride items like songs and writing contests, and various feature articles and spotlights written by staff members or guest writers. It was illustrated throughout with scenic photographs. The end of the volume usually contained monthly or yearly receipts and disbursements provided by the City Treasurer and a Summary of Minutes of the City Commission meetings. After about the 1930s, issues became streamlined and might include only city departments, receipts and disbursements and the summary of minutes. Under Mayor Ted Wilson, a changeover from commission style government was completed in 1979.
