How Well Are We Doing So Far?

The Performance & Finance Overview & Scrutiny Board met this week to discuss the results for the first quarter performance and financial monitoring.  Councillors asked for further information on:

  • The Council Contact Centre
  • Fly tipping
  • Damage to roads and pavements
  • The central library
  • Council house empty properties

The Board also received the treasury management annual report for 2010/2011.  Treasury management is defined as ‘the management of the organisation’s cash flows, its banking, money market and capital market transactions; the effective control of the risks associated with those activities; and the pursuit of optimum performance consistent with those risks’.  That seems a bit of a mouthful but basically it’s about looking after the Council’s money.  In the current financial climate the Council has taken a cautious borrowing and investment strategy, with security of the investment being of paramount concern.  Click here to read the annual report and to find out about the performance results for the Council from 1st April 2011 to 30th June 2011.
