Object Detail


Name/title notes
The office of Town Clerk in Bo'ness pre-dates the establishment of Bo'ness Town Council. The Harbour & Town Trustees and the Police & Burgh Commissioners employed local solicitors as clerks and the office of Town Clerk evolved out of these appointments. The Town Clerk kept the minutes, correspondence and other administrative records of the local authorities and acted as their legal adviser. The post ceased to exist with the abolition of Bo'ness Town Council in 1975 and the functions were mainly transferred to the Chief Executive or to the Director of Law & Administration of Falkirk District Council.
