Minutes:

The Director of Governance presented a report which invited Members to consider the points system for the nomination of the Lord Mayor of York and to confirm the qualification of the group with the most points to make the nomination for the 2020/21 Municipal Year.

 

Under the current points system, as set out in paragraph 4 of the report, the Liberal Democrat group qualified to make the nomination, as they had accumulated the largest number of points.

 

Members were reminded that the current Lord Mayor had allowed the nomination of next year’s Lord Mayor and Sheriff to take place in advance of this report, at the meeting of Full Council in December 2019, because the December Executive meeting had been cancelled due to the General Election.  Attention was also drawn to an error in the table at paragraph 4 of the report on the printed copies of the agenda; the total number of points accumulated by the Labour group was -16 and not -26 as stated.

 

Resolved:  That the Liberal Democrat Group be invited to nominate the Lord Mayor for 2020/21, in line with the accumulated points system set out in paragraphs 3-6 of the report.

 

Reason:     To ensure that the Council maintains an appropriate method by which to nominate Lord Mayors for office.
