Finance Employment & Risk Management Committee

Every year the council has to decide what it is going to do in the next financial year and what it is likely to cost. It then asks the district council for the money by way of what is called a precept. The district council raises the money as a part if the council tax for the following year. The council tax year runs from 1st April.

The Finance, Employment & Risk Management Committee is delegated the task of looking after the financial matters of the council including entering into contracts for work, banking, accounting, audit, authorising bills, preparing the budget, and reporting financial information to the full council on a regular basis. It is also responsible for the council's Risk Management Strategy and for ensuring that all the employees are provided with the appropriate contracts, job descriptions and terms and conditions of employment.

For the year from April 2017 to March 2018 the Council has asked for a precept of £71,416.61 [2016/17 £68,228.57].

Councillors on the Finance, Employment & Risk Management Committee are:
