All meetings are open

K Brown raised a number of points in his letter about the town council.

All our meetings are open the public except where they deal with private matters such as individual staff or contractual negotiations. Details are always put on the town council’s website and increasingly on our page on Facebook.

I assume the reference to April is to the town meeting which was held on a Wednesday. This was chosen to avoid other meetings and not to be in the campaign period for the recent elections.

Most of the matters mentioned are not within the powers of the town council, but as a council we try to assist those public and private bodies with resources to invest in our town.

K Brown is welcome to attend our next town council meeting on Thursday, July 17, at 6.30pm when there will be a time for public questions.

Coun Olga Potts

Mayor, Blyth Town Council
