A year's worth of the proceedings of the Municipal Council of Welland County which included 17 townships and villages: Bertie, Crowland, Chippawa, Crystal Beach, Fort Erie, Fonthill, Humberstone (township and village), Pelham, Port Colborne, Stamford, Thorold (Town and Township), Willoughby, Wainfleet, Welland and Niagara Falls.
Consisting of five separate session reports it is a compilation of various departmental reports, financial records and reprints of letters received by the council. The councillors and officials of the council are listed as are many from the villages and townships in the county. It also includes a list of all the Wardens who held office since 1856.
There is even a letter from a gentleman, giving notice that he intends to sue the council for the damages caused to his automobile by the poor state of repair of a particular road. Nothing changes!
