Marquette City Commission Minutes, 1868-1993

The "Proceedings of the Marquette City Commission, 1869-1993" are the official approved record of city commission meetings. In the early years of the commission, they were sometimes titled "Minutes of the City Commission" instead of "Proceedings."

The "Marquette City Commission Meeting Files, 1893-1922" contain a wide variety of materials related to city commission sessions, including first drafts of the minutes, copies of resolutions adopted by the commission, vote tally sheets, reports and correspondence sent to the commission, clippings of the minutes that ran in the Marquette Mining Journal, and occasionally copies of the official proceedings/minutes themselves. All of the items listed above are not present for each meeting session.
