In some cases there may not be a copy of the text, but a brief description about the resolution that the council passed. From 1908 through 1971, the resolutions were numbered consecutively & continuously from 1 to 170. Beginning in 1972, a new numbering system occurs using the year the resolution passed, counting consecutively each year. There are gaps in the record at 86 through 88, 127, and 144. These numbers were unused or missing.

|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.|
