Committee Meetings:

 

September 17th Governance Committee

2.15 p.m.; County Hall

Full agenda and reports at: http://bit.ly/R7u0YF

Governance committee tends, obviously, to deal with the internal workings of the council, rather than policy matters, but there is an important item on the policy of allowing teachers recruited from academies to WSCC schools to count their service as continuous; it might seem rather obvious that it should work that way, but it needs to be made explicit.

1 application for a Private Hire Driver’s License. Normally these would be delegated to officers, but there may be some specific information in the application that would require more consideration.

 

 

Cabinet/Cabinet Member Decisions

Leader of the Council:

Remembrance Sunday Reception – location: decision due after September 24th

It might seem that deciding where to hold the traditional reception after the Remembrance Sunday service and parade would be uncontroversial and straightforward, but not really. The council has managed to allow almost every possible location in the town hall complex – the committee suite, the Gordon Room, the Assembly Hall – to be booked up for other purposes, or in one case, filled with stored documents. It would seem difficult to be taken by surprise by Remembrance Sunday, but Worthing BC have managed it.

 

Deputy Leader/Cabinet Member for Regeneration:

Portland House/Town Hall Car Park – Marketing Brief: decision due after July 2nd, but still not recorded as made!

 

Cabinet Member for Resources:

Irrecoverable Debts – Council Tax and Non-Domestic Rates: decision due after July 6th, but still not recorded as made.

 

Cabinet Member for Customer Services:

none

(last decision 30/7/12 – joint decision with Adur)

 

Cabinet Member for Health & Wellbeing:

none

(last decision 16/5/11)

 

Cabinet Member for Environment:

none

(last decision 31/5/12)

Irrecoverable Debts – Council Tax and Non-Domestic Rates: report 28th June, decision due after 6th July.

Council tax writeoffs total £14,156.63

Non-Domestic Rates writeoffs total £29,691.53; this doesn’t actually cost the council anything as NDR go into the national pool, and these writeoffs are deducted from our contribution, but it does serve as a local economic indicator of sorts.
