The Committee considered its Forward Plan for the forthcoming municipal year.
The Chair had put forward a number of items for consideration by the Committee. The Chief Finance Officer advised that some of those items were already on the Internal Audit Plan, some were not within the Committee’s remit and as the coming months were busy for any finance related issues, it was suggested that any additional items were planned for later in the year.
Resolved that the Committee’s Forward Plan for the coming municipal year be approved subject to the addition of the items previously discussed during the meeting and the following items:
· Budget setting process for additional staff (July meeting)
· Revenue equalisation reserve. (This required some work on strategy first before coming to the Committee but would be added to the Plan as a future item.)
It was moved, seconded and resolved to move the exclusion of the Press and Public for the following item in view of the likely disclosure of exempt information within the meaning of Part 1 of Schedule 12A to the Local Government Act 1972, as amended by the Local Government (Access to Information) Act 1985 and by the Local Government (Access to information) (Variation) Order 2006.
(Paragraph 3 – Information relating to the financial or business affairs of any particular person (including the authority holding that information)
It was agreed that one further issue should be discussed initially with the Interim Monitoring Officer and, if appropriate, added to the Forward Plan at a later date.
