The Audio Minutes from the Jan PC meeting.

Thus is the audio file from the Parish Council Meeting in January.

January Audio File

A very interesting meeting, which I will add comments later here.

One very interesting point and just shows how the Chairmans mind works. He was reluctant to spend £800 to make safe some dangerous trees, but was very happy to allocate £500 to the Chairmans fund (historically used on the Annual meeting to buy alcohol). Says it all really…

  1. Wow, it use to be £50!

    From the Good Councillors Guide:

    “The chairman often enjoys a special relationship with the public, especially in a town where the chairman is also the mayor. It is the chairman who leads the Annual Town or Parish Meeting (remember, this is not a council meeting) and opens the fete, or welcomes official visitors from abroad. This is one reason why the chairman can receive an allowance to support this important public role.”

  2. David, the population has expanded quite a bit but the Chairman did not even pitch up at the last Parish Meeting!!

  3. He takes £500 because he can and no one is prepared to challenge him!He just looks at the increase in population and says my booze bill will need to go up! Simple but £10k for Contamination sampling is a total waste of money when CDC should be doing its job!

      The Chairman would attend, but chooses not to. It appears when there is a ruffle there are two councillors not to be seen Why? We all know the answer to that one.

      Why don’t we ask what the chair contributed the remainder of the last £500 to? I’m sure like always has an answer for everything Oh and he’s always RIGHT NOT

  4. Max, our chairman does indeed have a special relationship with the public, its unique as it is non existent!
