The Finance & Properties Committee meets monthly, on the 2nd Monday of each month and amongst other things scrutinises the invoices received by the Council and the monthly financial reports prepared by the Town Clerk. Topics dealt with recently vary from ensuring best value for the floral decorations that the Council provide for the Town to evaluating the Council budget for the next financial year. The Finance Committee, once satisfied, recommends its findings to the Full Council for consideration.
This committee also takes decisions over the development and maintenance of the Council’s property portfolio. This includes the Rowberry Street Complex comprising the Old Vicarage, Heritage Centre, Car Park and Town Green. Also this committee looks after the allotments and riverside walk at Broadbridge as well as taking a role in the Kempson Players on Old Road.
