Here’s a 10 minute video of what was discussed at Finance Scrutiny Committee today (Thurs 25th September). The highlight comes at 3 mins in, where the chair of the committee, Cllr Carl Ollerhead, points out that the most minimal information is STILL not on the official website, despite specific and repeated requests by elected members, dating back several months. The answer he gets is very very weak, and is challenged by another councillor.
If you watch the video and wonder why so few of the members of that committee have questions, it’s because- despite asking for information for three consecutive months – they only received information (two sides of A4) shortly before the meeting. How on earth are they supposed to perform their scrutiny function under such conditions?!
Watch. This. Space.
