Scope and content

Series consists of two handwritten, bound volumes, of a list of building permits granted by the Town of Sudbury. These records acted as both registers and account books to determine the fees charged for water for construction purposes and, by 1919, an additional fee for the building permit itself. Entries are recorded by date and include the permit number, the name of the company or person doing the work, the address, the cost of construction listed as amount or value (only listed after 1920), a description of what was being built or renovated, who the work was for, what materials were used, and the fees for water and building permits. A Town of Sudbury Waterworks Department Application for Water for Construction Purposes and various Town of Sudbury Treasurer's Office Receipts are included as attachments in the books along with 2 cent Canada Postage stamps. The stamps, when used, were placed by the totals and included annotations of a date and initials written on them. This was most likely done as a check for auditing purposes.
