This series comprises the minutes of the general and special committee meetings of the Pine Divisional Board, the Pine Shire Council and the Pine Rivers Shire Council. Among the special committees whose reports and minutes are included in this series are Works, Special Planning and Environment, Community and Health, Finance, Coordination, Corporate Operations, Strategic and Planning, and the Administration Committees.
The minutes record the name of the members and officers who attended, matters discussed and the recommendations put forward or approved. Although all attachments (correspondence, reports, papers, memorandum etc) are filed separately from the minutes, the minutes may include information from the financial statements, information sheets, local government standards and by-laws, annual staff reviews of salaries, copies of letters received by the Council and lists of vouchers (petty cash cheques) requiring Council endorsement. At the end of some minute books the minutes of meetings of the Pine Rivers Koala Care Association Inc are included.
