At minute 47 of the last Parish Council Meeting there were discussions about renewing Office 365, which was authorised (Office 365 was on the Agenda).
Then the clerk took the meeting off Agenda and said there are a few things that need sorting out, see below:
First Point – The few things were not listed on the Agenda and are thus were discussed illegally.
Second Point – Back Ups of daily files – system was described as not working. This can be easily done by a standalone SSD hard disk, I use Synology NAS. Or an automated on-line back-up.
Third Point – Possible purchase of a new computer was discussed as this one appears to be less than 3 years old and according to the clerk and is slow.
Therefore my question is how long does a laptop last for? I have a MacBook Pro which is 7 years old and I can’t justify replacing it.
Finally, it appears we can have the best office set up in the county, but can we cut hedges or maintain trees?
