    Please note any emails or letters that have already been circulated to members will not be included unless a decision is needed that cannot be dealt with outside of Full Council or a committee.

    This is purely to note what has happened. The new payment process means approval is undertaken via email. Any questions or concerns on transactions should be referred to the Finance and Procurement Manager as part of that process.

  13. RESOLVED unanimously to replace DIP NVR X 4 (two required) total cost: £11,211.80 ex VAT and also RECOMMEND to the G&R Committee for the release of funds from the CCTV EMR. It was also recommended the CCTV Manager also to investigate advertising the CCTV Service again to other Towns in Cornwall.

    Please note:

    • This recommendation whilst directed to the Governance & Resources Committee, it is actually for Full Council as the committee can seek a release of its controlled EMR direct to Full Council.

  15. To receive reports from members who sit on outside bodies as well as issues and motions received, in line with Standing Order 9B, from members in relation to Newquay Town Council.

    Discussions under this item are for information only unless specifically listed on the agenda for a decision.

    Any concerns being raised or requests for information should be communicated to the Town Clerk as soon as possible and in good time before the meeting, to ensure they have been afforded the time to look into the matter. Failure to do this is likely to result in the Town Clerk having to note the matter and responding at a later date.
