Typed A4 page indicating cost codes for maintenance, number and place for maintenance and by whom. Extra areas for maintenance are written in by hand. Located in the sub-station office of Newmarket Saleyards.

Maintenance of the Newmarket yards was carried out by the Melbourne City Council. It mainly involved replacing rotten or broken timber fence rails and posts; repair of fittings on gates and rails; re-laying bluestone pitchers; and cleaning and maintenance of the administration buildings. The yard rails were made of hardwood, some of the older posts were jarrah but most were red gum. Sometimes damage to the yard would be caused by animals pushing against fences or becoming stuck between fence rails. Emergency maintenance and repairs had to be made during the sales, with the work being done quickly around the stock.
