Information Sources


According to legislative provisions made in the Divisional Boards Act and subsequent Acts, Local Authorities were required to make payments for wages, services performed and other expenses incurred, by means of cheques or vouchers, and keep a record of all such cheques and vouchers, which were numbered sequentially. At the same time a record of all monies paid or received was also kept, for account purposes. This series comprises records of wages paid by the local authority. The principle form recording wages paid (entitled 'Abstract and Acquittances of the wages of Labourers and others employed by the Pine Shire Council') included the following information: cheque or voucher number, division number, payment period (date), on what work or road employed, trade, name, number of working days, daily rate of wage, amount, the signatures of each employee acknowledging receipt of payment, date of payment, witness, and the signatures of the Chairman of the Finance Committee, the Shire Clerk and Overseer, certifying the details of the form. This book also records vouchers paid with respect to other services or articles provided to the Shire Council and receipts from various bodies for monies paid by the Shire Council.
