#Manchester City Council Scrutiny Week July 2014

Because those democracy-lovers in Manchester Town Hall are unable/unwilling to do this themselves, here are the agendas (and links to reports) for the existing 6 scrutiny committees, scraped from the award-winning website.  The scrutiny committees all meet in the so-called “Scrutiny Room” on the second floor of the Town Hall Extension but there’s no access  through the extension- you go through the pokey little side entrance on that street between Castle Grayskull and the brutalist extension, past the sign that says “no access beyond this point”, up the stairs and across the walkway.  No need to book, cos everyone is welcome at these meetings. Oh yes.

There are a bunch of things the council – now totally Labour – could do to improve the scrutiny experience for members of the public.  And it will not do a single one of these unless forced to, since they do like a quiet life, where they only “consult” with people who can be relied to give the ‘right’ answers.

If you spot an item here that you think someone else would be interested in, please forward it on to them! If you want to get involved in creating a People’s Environmental Scrutiny Committee, then either come along on Monday 8th July, 7pm, at Subrosa, 27 Lloyd St South, Moss Side, or email mcmonthly@gmail.com
