Minute Number 222 – Questions from the Public.

Q1) Mrs Cook – In two weeks time we have the county Council Elections.  Would it be possible for the Council to organise and manage a meeting to invite all candidates to outline their priorities and answer questions?

Q2) Councillor  Aldridge read out a question from Richard Price – I am unable to attend the meting, however what is the criteria for matters going into Part B of meetings?

A1)The Mayor replied that this had been discussed before.  After discussion it was then agreed to invite all candidates to a meeting on Thursday 25th April at the Parish Hall at 7.30 pm.

A2)  The Mayor replied that the following is seen as desirable to discuss as confidential:-

a) Engagement, terms of service, conduct and dismissal of employees
b) Terms of tenders, and proposals and counter-proposals in negotiations for contracts
c) Preparation of cases in legal proceedings
d) The early stages of any dispute

Therefore the discussion of property/leases etc is confidential, as is staff related matters.

She stated that of course, if a member requests an item to be put on the Agenda and they believe it to be of a sensitive nature, they can ask for it to be under Part B.  As with all Council agendas, this is then confirmed/agreed by the Mayor.
