Administrative history

The City of Guelph tax collector was appointed by City Council for a one year term. Council could also appoint a second collector, if needed. The tax collector's duties were prescribed by by-law and included the collection of public and separate schools, city and local improvement taxes within the City of Guelph. In 1886, the City Collector also acted as the Police Clerk and handed over all fines, forfeitures and costs received in police court during the preceding month, to the City Treasurer.
