Maybe I'm going to sound like a Luddite here but I have to share this great City Council meeting summary.
Copyright Gods forgive me, this page is from the Winnipeg Free Press Archives October 9, 1980. It's a great one page summary of the key issues and how council voted (granted this was a summary for election purposes it could also be used for single meetings).
Despite on-line newspapers, up-to-the-minute updates, live Twittering etc. this old-fashioned chart is great coverage of meetings past.
