Town Council Minutes 11 April 2016

Yn disgwyl am adolygiad mewnol gan Thornaby Town Council o'u triniaeth o'r cais hwn.

Dear Thornaby Town Council,

The published Town Council minutes for the meeting on 11 April 2016 contain as their last page a schedule of payments to, amongst others, DMN Project Management.

As the Council has now published this schedule, and therefore it's content cannot possibly be described as "commercially sensitive", would you please provide a copy of the minutes of the meeting of Thornaby Town Council at which these payments were approved.

In addition, please provide a copy of the agenda for the meeting at which the payments were approved, and a copy of the current declaration of interests for Cllrs Stephen Walmsley and Ian Dalgarno.

For the sake of clarity, and to avoid delay, none of this information is commercially confidential, nor does it appear on your website.

Yours faithfully,

Allan Mitchell

Thornaby town Council, Thornaby Town Council

Dear Thornaby town Council,

Thank you for your e-mail with attached minutes and declarations of interest.

I'm afraid this does not answer my question, nor does it provide what I requested.

Please provide me with copies of the minutes of the meeting(s) at which the Town Council approved payments to DMN Project Management Ltd. If no such minutes are available please confirm how, and by whom, payments to DMN have been approved.

Yours sincerely,

Allan Mitchell

Dear Thornaby town Council,

Further to my e-mail of 2 June, and your reply of 7 June, please advise me when I can expect a reply to my request.

Dear Mr Mitchell

I am sorry for delayed response, but as you are no doubt aware TTC is currently in the process of recruiting a new Town Clerk.

The cheque signatories remain the same as they have for a number of years; extract below from minutes of meeting held Monday 16th May 2016, voted on by all members. All cheques require signatures from 2 of the 4 authorised and it is usually the Chair and one other depending on availability, usually Cllr Pat Large or Cllr Glenn Eastick . Cllr Dalgarno has previously declared an interest in DMN and consequently would not sign cheques made out that company.

All payments made by TTC & THRP are subject to strict audit procedures by external accountants.

*********

MINUTE EXTRACT FROM MONDAY 16TH MAY 2016
AM-16-100: TO CONFIRM/APPOINT CHEQUE SIGNATORIES

IT WAS RESOLVED that the following councillors remain as cheque signatories for the council year 2016-2017

1. Councillor Ian Dalgarno
2. Councillor Steve Walmsley
3. Councillor Pat Large
4. Councillor Glenn Eastick

I trust this resolves your request.

Dear Cllr Walmsley,

I am afraid your reply doesn't resolve my request, which was for a copy of the minutes of the Town Council meeting at which the payment of £25,500 to DMN was approved by the Council.

You will be aware of Thornaby Town Council's financial regulations in this regard.

Yours sincerely,

Allan Mitchell
