The council recently adopted a new Town Twinning Policy which while welcome fails to address key governance concerns which triggered it. Can the council provide details of how much and by whom expenses have been claimed for Twinning Trips to include all twinned with Towns in the District, since 2011; and the status of the Argentre du Plessis twinning where the costing for the twinning was not provided in advance of the vote, as required by law?
Here is the report issued by: Ms. Ann Marie Connelly, Acting/Senior Executive Officer Community and Culture Section: The information below is drawn from our current Agresso system and does not include Newbridge Town Council figures as the former Town Clerk is on leave. When this information becomes available it will be provided. Total expenses claimed since 2014 is €2894. Councillor Aspell (€2508) and Councillor Kennedy (€386). All three local town twinnings are active.
