Series consists of minutes (open and in-camera/closed) of the Council/School Board Liaison Committee and its predecessor the Council/School Board Task Force. Minutes detail ongoing cooperative activities of the municipality and the Richmond School Board, including joint administration of school grounds and parks, the acquisition and exchange of land and buildings, and joint development planning activities of the two bodies. The responsibility for taking minutes has alternated annually between the municipality and the school board. As a result, the format of the minutes changes yearly.
