Summary :

The records in this collection mainly concern the organization's early efforts to organize, including raising money, finding a proper name for the organization, and some notes from the first meetings. There are letters explaining why some businessmen chose not to contribute. There are also a number of financial records, monthly expense statements, copies of Federal income tax returns, and bank statements. There is correspondence relating to the closing out of the books on the Council and distributing the remaining funds to the State for a useful purpose, and the disposal of its records and how they should be made available to the public.

Biographical or historical data :

The Council was formed in 1976 and hired a Chicago consultant firm, Warren King and Associates, to make a study of state government and come up with specific recommendations for "ways, means, procedures and programs to effect economies and improvements in the operation of state and local government" in Vermont. The Vermont business community was asked both to finance the undertaking and also to name individuals who would have the expertise to make recommendations in specific areas, such as accounting, personnel, food service, and finance. King and Associates completed a preliminary survey in 1976. In 1977 the final survey and recommendations were made. The Council closed down its operations in 1982.
