Town Clerk and Chief Executive Comment:
As Proper Officer, the attached report is outlining unforeseen resource issues that are unduly impacted by the dates of the E&F Committee, where they fall on the same week as the C&T Committee. This has been raised by the officers involved with those committees and processes. It is therefore recommended to move such dates of the E&F Committee meetings to the following week, where this occurs in order to ensure resources can manage the meetings effectively and payroll processes are not compromised.

To receive, consider and decide on valid applications to fill current casual vacancies, subject to a presentation and questions from members.

  • Only members of the Council can view the submitted applications as they contain personal information. Members should therefore ensure these applications are kept secure and not printed or shared with others.
