Scope and content

This record group consists of records created by the Montgomery County, Alabama County Commission during the course of normal business. This extensive collection contains a wide variety of paper-based and photographic records, including: county commission minutes, budgets, issuing and redemption of bonds, materials related to managing elections such as polling districts and requests to change voting places, aerial photographs of the county, photographs of past and present county commissioners, records related to the construction, maintenance, and rehabilitation of county-owned buildings; various datasets including projects
related to county census, claims against the county, the county’s funding and oversite of various non-profit entities, employee rules and regulations, employee handbooks, official bonds and oaths of various county employees, deeds to county properties, records no longer created by the Montgomery County Commission, and miscellaneous records. This record group also contains the county Board of Equalization records. The Board of Equalization occupies a unique place in county government structure since it has a fair degree of independence in conducting its duties. For instance, the Board of Equalization reviews the work of the county revenue commission and if necessary changes property valuations.

System of arrangement

The Alabama Department of Archives and History (ADAH) creates manuals called records disposition authorities (RDA) to help those responsible for state and local records in Alabama manage the records under their control. The RDAs evaluate records
produced by various government entities, such as the Montgomery County Commission, and determines what, and how long, archives have to keep various records. In the course of doing so, the RDAs group records based on their various functions. Accordingly, this finding has organized the records in the Montgomery County Commission Record Group based on the
function they helped serve, or that which created them.
