Town Council Conduct

Postby Steve » Thu 12 Apr 2018 1:17 am

The town council seem determined to bring itself in to disrepute.

Following the mayor's cancellation of a council meeting, it appears that the feud between two councillors is still on.

There's no mention of what the dispute is about or why its taken so long which I'm sure must affect the cost.

I'm guessing the row may have something to do with the fact the mayor is a university student at Oxford, and cant possibly attend all the meetings and functions people expect the mayor at.

Full Council - Annual Town Meeting, 23-Apr-2018 7:30pm Fletchers Lea. Bring popcorn.

It's also Mayor Curtis' final meeting as mayor. As well as probably the last meeting before EHDC vote on adoption of the District Plan. A good time to hand deliver a letter to your councillors.

Does anyone remember Clochemerle? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clochemerle_(TV_series) I think Curtis' final act should be to propose a pissoir in the centre of Tudor Square.

I confess to being somewhat fascinated by the membership and purpose of this secret Tory cabal. We can be fairly sure that Mick & Roz Standley and J Taylor are in it and that J Kaye and D Oldridge are not. A Curtis was but no more. What about the rest of them?

And then there's the nature of the “serious” code of conduct complaint. The Mercury journalist is reading 2+2 in the council minutes and finding 5 but it's not necessarily as simple as that.

Popcorn! We need more popcorn!

We wish him well in his Oxford Uni finals in a month's time.

- No full council meeting in Jan
- Mayor misses Feb meeting due to flu, Deputy (Cllr M Standley) fills in
- March meeting cancelled [1]
- April meeting is the Annual Summary (bring popcorn!)

So when is normal Full Council business conducted?

There was due to be a meeting to discuss a Ware Town Neighbourhood Plan on the Thursday before Easter (led by Curtis) but that got cancelled as well.
