THE ROLE OF THE CLERK
The Council employs a 'Clerk' who is the ‘Proper Officer’ of the Council and has responsibility for the smooth and legal running of the Council’s business along with the Financial Management.
He/she is the first point of contact for the Council and all correspondence comes to, and is issued by, the Clerk on behalf of the Council. The Clerk implements the decisions of the Council where necessary.
The Clerk prepares, circulates and displays the agendas. She/he signs notices and summons with a list of the business to be transacted.
The Clerk is required to attend meetings, take minutes, keep Council minutes in a book and hold other legal documents.
A member of the Council may be appointed as Clerk without remuneration but nowadays it is more usual to appoint a professional who is paid for the work they undertake.
The Agenda for the upcoming meetings are on the noticeboards throughout the Parish, and available in the relevant section on the website. If you would like the Council to discuss any issue in particular if you contact the Clerk then it can be put onto the agenda for the next available meeting.
