Minutes:

The Corporate Finance & Commercial Procurement Managerpresented a report which provided details of the council’s overall finance and performance position for the period 1 April to 30 June 2019.

 

The financial pressures facing the council were projected at £1,384k, broadly in line with previous years at this stage.  The report highlighted a number of known pressures, with strategies to manage and minimise these.  Contingency provision of £500k was available to cover some of the projected pressures and the postion was expected to improve over the year.  All repayments were up to date on the two outstanding loans over £100k, both to Yorwaste.  It was expected that the council would again out-turn within the approved budget.  Officers drew attention to the proposed use of government grant received to deal with costs associated with Brexit and the possibility of additional funding for adult social care arising from the Government’s spending review.

 

Key statutory services continued to perform well, with 2 of the strategic indicators for which there was new data showing improvements.  Details of all indicators, grouped around the new portfolio areas created in May 2019, were set out in paragraphs 38–118.  For the next quarterly report, there would be a new Performance Framework and set of indicators, based on the Council Plan approved for 2019-2023.

 

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

 

                   (ii)      That the use of grant funding outlined in paragraphs 29-32 of the report be approved.

 

                   (iii)     That the council tax charging proposals for long term empty properties outlined in paragraph 33 be approved.

 

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