Operational files 3

Series consists of records created by the City Manager under a filing system introduced in 1971. They pertain to virtually all areas of City activity.
Files are arranged alphabetically by subject within an overall numeric classification scheme in which letters of the alphabet are assigned a 'hundred-level' block of numbers for each year. For example, subjects filed under 'B' are found in the 200-299 range, subjects filed under 'C' are found in the 300-399 range, and subjects filed under 'D' (such as City Departments) are found in the 400-499 range. Sub-categories are assigned decimal extensions of the main numbers, so that general Parks records are found at 400.9 (Parks Department) and Parks records pertaining to Beacon Hill Park in particular are found at 400.9.1.
For earlier Manager records, see CRS 22 and CRS 23
