Minutes:

The Principal Accountant (on behalf of the Interim S.151 Officer) presented a report which provided details of the council’s overall finance and performance position for the period 1 July to 30 September 2019, together with an overview of any emerging issues.

 

The financial pressures facing the council were projected at £1,353k,broadly in line with previous years at this stage.  Details of the financial position within each directorate were provided in Annex 1.  The continuing pressures within Adult Social Care in particular were highlighted; these reflected the national situation.  However, through mitigation measures and monitoring it was expected that the council would out-turn within the approved budget.  All repayments were up to date on the two outstanding loans over £100k, both to Yorwaste.

 

Performance indicators for this quarter had been grouped around the eight outcome areas within the Council Plan for 2019-23, approved by Council in October 2019.  Indicators with a good direction of travel were summarised in paragraph 15 of the report, and those with a poor direction of travel in paragraph 16.  Further details were provided in Annex 2.

 

The Acting Chief Executive / Director of Customer & Corporate Services confirmed that the decision taken during the pre-election ‘purdah’ period to defer this report to January had been his, as Returning Officer.

 

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

 

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