These records include the minutes of the Poulsbo City Council meetings from January 7, 1908 to December 12, 2007. The majority of the minutes from 1907 to 1922 are handwritten; some records are faded and difficult to read. For a few of the minutes, the day of the meeting is either difficult to make out because it is faded, or was not written in. These are indicated as 00. Minutes for April 16 and 22, 1941 have a newspaper publication clipping attached to the page, covering a portion of the record.
Minutes are the official record of the proceedings of the City Council. Minutes may include date, members present, summary of official reports from various departments, budget approvals, and other city business. The records in this collection are indexed by date.

|Agency History:||Founded in the 1880s by Jorgen Eliason, a Norwegian immigrant, the city became an attractive place for Scandinavian immigrants to settle in the area. At the suggestion of resident, I.B. Moe in 1886, the residents agreed to name the city Paulsbo, after Moe's Norwegian hometown. By accident, officials misspelled the city's name as Poulsbo. The City of Poulsbo was incorporated in 1908 and is located in Kitsap County.|
