Fulton County Board of Commissioners records, 1979-1999
Boxes 14-25 and 55, OP 1, and OBV 1-2

Scope and Content Note

The subseries consists of records of the Fulton County Board of Commissioners from 1979-1999, including advance sheets, financial records, interoffice memoranda, mailing lists, meeting talking points and briefing papers, phone messages, retreat planning files, and zoning and development planning files. Advance sheets were the primary administrative planning document for Lomax's speaking engagements and other events. They include information about the organization requesting he speak, the event itself, the name of the staff person assigned to coordinate with the organization and/or draft talking points, and are often attached to correspondence with the organization. Additional advance sheets can be found in Subseries 2.2, Writings, attached to texts of speeches given by Lomax. Department of Finance files contain the financial records of Fulton County which mostly consist of budget reviews, expense sheets, and requisition status reports.

The series also includes office files documenting projects and business between the Board and City of Atlanta departments and committees such as the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games, Atlanta Chamber of Commerce, Central Area Study II Public Safety Task Force, Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA), the Clean Community Commission, Department of Family and Child Services, Department of Finance, Department of Planning and Economic Development, and Georgia Department of Human Resources' task force on Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS). The records also contain correspondence, planning files, memoranda, conference details, newspaper articles, and pamphlets and fliers for City of Atlanta events such as the Black Family Project and King Week hosted by the Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change, as well as proclamations and the summary of the Georgia General Assembly. Records relating to Fulton County document departments and organizations such as the Fulton County Jail and Police, the South Fulton Chamber of Commerce, the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library, the Fulton-Dekalb Hospital Authority, and the Fulton County Arts Council.

Additional financial records for the Fulton County Board of Commissioners are available in Series 6: Born digital material.
