Minutes:

The Director of Customer & Corporate Services presented a report which detailed the council’s overall finance and performance position for the period 1 October 2018 to 31 December 2018, together with an overview of any emerging issues.

 

The financial pressures facing the council were projected at £525k,slightly higher than previous years’ forecasts at this stage.  Variations within each directorate were detailed in paragraphs 8 to 33 of the report and summarised in Table 1 at paragraph 7.  It was noted that allocations from contingency, currently standing at £648k, might be needed to deal with some of these pressures.  However, it was expected that by the end of the year an underspend would again be achieved. 

 

Performance against the core indicators that monitored the priorities in the 2015-19 Council Plan was set out in paragraphs 44 to 99of the report.  Indicators identified as improving or declining were highlighted in paragraphs 42 and 43 respectively.  Details of performance relating to major projects, employees and customers were provided in paragraphs 100 to 113.  All performance data was available to view on the council’s open data platform at www.yorkopendata.org. 

 

In summary, key statutory services continued to perform well and, during a period of continued challenge for local government, the overall financial and performance position provided a sound platform from which to deal with future challenges.

 

Resolved:  (i)      That the finance and performance information be noted.

 

                   (ii)      That the position on the overall budget, and the need to retain some of the additional business rates income to cover potential cost pressures, be noted.

 

Reason:     To ensure that expenditure is kept within the approved budget.
