Being Maternal

27 May

I’m catching up on work that has been pushed aside, not because of lack of time as such but lack of focus.  While taking a break I picked up the Finance and Policy agenda and saw page 10.

grants05272013_0000What exactly is going on there?  Is an ‘Appropriation Account’ the same as a reserve account?  Given Richard King has said they didn’t need to put the $100,000 for A2B in the annual plan because it came from reserves, do we really want ratepayer funds going in and out of reserve accounts so freely?  It seems like once it’s in reserve King thinks they can do as they please.  Dean Johnston, the ‘money man’ at council claims a resolution of full council is required to spend monies out of reserve.

A virtual chocolate fish for the first person that can find a reserve account resolution from a full council meeting.  A virtual box of chocolate fish for whomever can find THE resolution for the A2B expenditure.


Got something to say?
