CARTINGTON PARISH COUNCIL
The Meeting of Cartington Parish Council was held in the Dovecote Room at the Jubilee Hall on Monday 26th April 2010.
PRESENT : Councillors I Armstrong (Chairman)
S Bridgett (Northumberland County Council)
Mr M Hodgson
APOLOGIES FOR ABSENCE : Apologies were received from the Police.
WELCOME : The Chairman welcomed Mr M Hodgson and thanked him for coming to the meeting to talk to us about how to get Cartington PC onto a web site. Mr Hodgson said he could put it on as a subsection of the Rothbury site and he would do the donkey work.
Mr Armstrong explained that the Parish Council had no contact with its parishioners and it would be useful to have the dates of the meeting and the minutes etc put onto the site.
The Freedom of Information would also be put on and it was decided to charge 10p per sheet for photocopying and everything else was in the pro-forma.
It was wondered if it was possible to put a map of the parish on the site also – Councillor Bridgett said he could get a map of the parish.
Mr Hodgson said once he had it up and running the council might want to alter it a bit but that would be no problem.
Mr Hodgson was thanked for his help and left the meeting.
MINUTES : The Minutes of the last meetings were circulated, confirmed that they were in order and signed by the Chairman.
STATEMENT OF ACCOUNTS : The Statement of accounts for the year ending 31st March 2010 were agreed upon and the Chairman and Clerk signed the Annual Return. It was agreed to ask Mr Logan Wood if he would act as the Internal Auditor again.
