Scope and Contents

This series consists of bound handwritten and typewritten accounts of the meetings held by the Public Service Commission and when it was known as The Railroad Commission. These volumes are one of the four elements that make up the Public Hearing Records Files. Some examples of the business discussed include: (1) the case of the Georgia Power Company to show cause why its rates should not be revised, (2) calls for a hearing application of the Central of Georgia Railway for authority to discontinue stopping Passenger Train No. 4 on flag at Gertrude, Georgia, and (3) an application of American Railway Express Company for authority to close one of its express stations. The minute books from The Railroad Commission cover the period of November, 1879 to August, 1898.
