Cllr Carr Update
Cllr Carr talked about City of York Council’s current financial situation.
It costs £120 million to run CYC services each year. Currently 1/3 of this budget is spent on adult social care. As the population average age range in rises the cost of adult social care will increase. Over the next 2 years the adult social care cost will be over half of the budget at £60million.
Central Government want all local authorities to become self sufficient over the next 2/3 years. This extra money needed will be from revenue in council tax and car parking.
CYC have devolved some spending to local communities including Copmanthorpe Ward.
Cllr Carr outlined the new budget for 2016/17. The under spend from last years budget has transferred into this year’s budget.
2016/17 Ward Budget: £20,000 Ringfenced highway budget: £10,000
The following year’s will be Ward Budget: £10,000 Ringfenced highway budget: £5,000
Community groups are welcome to submit applications for grants under the General Ward Budget.
The latest index of multi deprivation ‘property and wellbeing’ put Copmanthorpe ward at the top 10% of the country.

Over the last few months there has been an increase in ‘bogus doorstep callers’ in York. These are usually men disguised as roofers. They prey on the elderly and pretend to asses the victim’s roof. They then drive them to a cash machine and ask them to take money out of the cash point for the repair work. PCSO Court left some bogus caller prevention leaflets.
A resident gave feedback that she was unhappy not to receive any follow-up from the Police after handing in a handbag.
A resident asked if there was an update on the house burglary 12 months ago. PCSO Court explained that there was an arrest following on from Operation Hawk (Joint Police project with neighbouring forces to tackle cross boarder crime) unfortunately there was no prosecution by Crown Prosecution Service.

The highways team are finalising the highway programme for next year.
The team assesses the condition of roads with a grading 1-5

4 and 5 roads are considered for work.
The 4 and 5 graded roads are put on a database to be prioritised and considered.
