Reply to my latest questions asking if draft minutes may be seen by the public before they are confirmed by the council :
“Thank you for pointing out the error on the agenda.
Currently, it is not the policy of Maltby Town Council to publish minutes prior to them being ratified in Council.
Ann Stewart Town Clerk and RFO MALTBY TOWN COUNCIL “
In other words, whatever MTC says has been said or hasn’t been said, who was at a meeting or who wasn’t, what was discussed or not, is The Law According to Maltby Town Council and it doesn’t look as that’s going to change any time in the future.
MTC are refusing to let any minutes or documentation being seen by the public until they have been “ratified” by the council – even if they are incorrect or contain errors.
Thanks for that MTC. A truly open, honest and transparent council ?
I think not.
(ratified – formally approved and invested with legal authority(OED) )
