The Town Clerk and Treasurer was responsible for census enumeration and the voters list in the Town of Jasper Place. From 1960 until amalgamation, Ogilvie S. Taylor was Town Clerk and Treasurer. At the time of annexation, August 17, 1964, the Town Clerk and Treasurer ceased his functions and the records from the department were assumed by Edmonton's Office of the City Clerk.

Specially appointed committees were struck to meet the needs of the City Council to respond to specific issues arising from the business of the City. Calls for investigation of administrative matters, organization of public meetings, special commemorative events, or fact finding to answer questions raised by aldermen led to the appointment of short-term committees. By 1915, many of these committees such as the Finance Committee and the Negotiating Committee were routinely appointed each year. Other committees had shorter lifespans, or changed name and focus as the needs of the City Council changed.
During the period following the Second World War the work of organizing these committees increased significantly and a Secretary to the Committees was hired. Eventually the committee structure stabilized to four or five regularly appointed bodies which appear in most of the years from the 1930s onwards.
This series contains correspondence and special reports from these special committees.
This series consists of the records created by the Office of the City Clerk relating to local elections. The material contains voters' lists, burgesses' lists, lists of electors, and census enumeration records.
