Bibb County - Dept of Family and Children Services - Minutes of the Bibb County DFCS Board

 Series
Identifier: 111-06-001

Scope and Contents

This series contains the summary type minutes of the meetings of the board of the Macon City-Bibb County Department of Welfare which later became the Bibb County Department of Family and Children Services. Though the format changed considerably over the years with a trend towards more lengthy minutes, there are certain items which are very often present. Financial-statistical summaries of public assistance expenditures and totals for the month, for example, are common. Also very often present are lengthy lists of specific cases handled by the Department in the areas of old age assistance, assistance for the needy and blind, aid to dependent children and general assistance. Brief resumes of the cases are also included with particular emphasis on transfer cases from other counties. Personnel transfers, travel and performance reports are also common items for discussion at the board meetings. It’s interesting to note that the founding legal documents are included in the earliest file folder.

Arrangement Note

The minutes are arranged chronologically by date of meeting and are grouped in file folders by one or two year periods. There are many date gaps in these minutes both within and between years which would seem to indicate either irregularity in meeting times or an incomplete series of records.
