Return of face-to-face council committee meetings
Weymouth Town Council agreed to resume future committee meetings in person when Full Council met virtually last night, on Wednesday 6th October.
Councillors considered the latest data on Covid-19 case rates and safe working recommendations, before making the decision to return to face-to-face meetings.
The next meeting to be held in person at the town council offices on Commercial Road will be the Services Committee on Wednesday 20th October. Full Council meetings will continue to be held virtually for the time being.
In a round-up of other key decisions taken last night, councillors agreed to adopt a Decarbonisation Strategy and Action Plan. The council declared a climate change and ecological emergency in 2019 and these plans will help to achieve the ambition of net zero carbon emissions by 2030.
Councillors also agreed a policy on how the four council-run cemeteries in Weymouth are to be maintained and managed.
An external audit of the council’s finances has also been carried out and councillors received a report from PFK Littlejohn. In it, the auditors confirmed that the council successfully passed its audit for another year with no advisory notes.
