To note that the Town Clerk is in the process
of reviewing the Council's Standing Orders.
To consider and adopt the Council's revised Financial Regulations incorporating changes in legislation, regulations and personnel.
The Council received and considered the revised Financial Regulations provided by the Town Clerk and noted the intention to review Standing Orders in the near future.
Members were advised the new regulations incorporated changes in legislation, regulations and personnel and were based on the recognised model by the National Association of Local Council’s (NALC). Once adopted they would assist new officers of the Council in meeting the Council’s transparency and financial obligations.
As the Standing Orders contained many technical and statutory parts, they would require further time for review, but would be brought to the Council soon.
That the Financial Regulations, as proposed with the report be accepted by Witney Town Council.
