Councillors should not be concerning themselves with Asset Management, says officer

“Donna Best, Principal Estates Surveyor explained the reason behind the Asset Management Forum (AMF) and that most Local Asset Management Forums only consisted of officers and had little if any Councillor representation”

ITS BEEN MEETING WITH OFFICERS AND COUNCILLORS SINCE 2009, AND MS BEST HAS ATTENDED SINCE THEN!

Has it taken her six years to come up with this and an explanation of what she thinks the Asset Management Forum is FOR? And why now, one wonders? Too much of a spotlight on it and a wish to go back to the shadows perhaps – no councillors means no agendas or minutes ..,

  2. Can we please go back to the days when Officers recommend and Councillors make the decisions. If not, why do we need Councillors??
