Dear Mr. Hawkins,

 

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000

Reference No: F-2012-00384

 

Thank you for your request for information dated May 28, 2012 concerning
expenditure to date related to the London 2012 Olympics, incurred and
funded by the Council.

 

This is to inform you that your request has been considered and I can
provide the following response:

 

 

Powys County Council's budget for activities related to the London 2012
Olympics is £25K.  This budget has been used to support a range of Olympic
related events within the county including:

 

3 Olympic Torch Relay events in Machynlleth on 28 May, and Llanymynech and
Welshpool on 30 May.

2 Family Olympic Sports Festivals for schools held as parallel events to
the Olympic Torch Relay events.

 A Family Cycle Day on 26 May in Machynlleth Sports Centre.

 Olympic Festivals to be held throughout the county during the summer X
Games (a community sports events) to be held in Llanidloes on 23 June.

 A range of Olympic competitions within schools throughout the county.

 

 New flexible working patterns for staff have enabled all work associated
with the Olympics to be accommodated within normal work routines. 

 

As there were no official engagements for council members associated with
the Olympics, no expenses are expected in this regard.

 

 

I trust we have met your information requirements at this time. We believe
that this request is now complete and shall be closed immediately. Should
any further information be requested regarding this topic, a separate
request will need to be submitted.

Powys County Council.

 

 

Yours sincerely,
