Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


To ask Executive to consider the points system for the annual nomination of the Lord Mayor for the City of York Council and confirm that the Group with the most points under that system should be invited to appoint the Lord Mayor for the coming municipal year, 2019/2020.


Resolved:  (i)      That the points system for the annual nomination of the Lord Mayor be altered slightly to enable Members who have served 4 years and are then re-elected for a further 4 years in May 2019 to be eligible for nomination as Lord Mayor for 2019/20.


(ii)      That the Conservative Group be invited to nominate the Lord Mayor for 2019/2020, in line with the revised accumulated points system.


Reason:     To ensure that the council adopts an appropriate method by which to nominate Lord Mayors for office, and in view of the local elections being held before the start of the next Civic Year.
