Council provide an Annual Report of their use and governance of public monies

My second motion at today’s Municipal District meeting, ‘That where it has not executed its oversight function over organisations it funds in the municipal district (and county) the council now ask that they provide an annual report of their use and governance of public monies and they be uploaded onto the council’s website for public access.

Here is the report issued by Mr T McDonnell, Director of Services, Housing and Corporate Services : ‘It is extremely difficult to respond to a hypothetical question such as this. Different funding streams and different levels of funding require different funding arrangements, oversight and governance. The council cannot commit to an action without understanding fully what the context is.
