Minutes of Meeting held on 2nd August 2005
The minutes were accepted as an accurate account.
Proposed: Cllr. L. Payne
Seconded: Cllr. S. Rollinson
Vote: carried unanimously
Cllr. J. Sizer has been unable to purchase the strimmer because of harvesting. He will have more free time later this month. Cllr. M. Turnbull is still chasing Yorkshire Water regarding the remedial work. Cllr. J. F. Robinson has received maps from Yorkshire Water outlining the sewerage system in Skeffling. They had promised to give us an updated version to show the sewerage system following the work done when the filtration plant was installed. The maps are not fully up to date as the new pipe work has not yet been put onto Yorkshire Water's computer system.
The cheque for the annual rent has not yet been received and the Clerk is to write to Yorkshire Water to remind them.
A questionnaire has been received regarding the work done by Streetscene this year. This was passed to Cllr. P. Payne to complete.
Declaration of Interest
There were no declarations of interest.
Cllr. J. F. Robinson has seen iron bench sides at Marshall's Yard. They were £80 for two sets, but needed seats and backrest. It was suggested that these would be suitable for Skeffling as to buy them new would be very expensive. It was decided that this item be discussed at a later date.
All letters and booklets have been put in the current folder for circulation among Councillors. A letter has been received from the Audit Commission passing the Annual Audit figures for 2004/2005. They have also made suggestion on how to use any large funds which might be received in the future. Any extra funds received by the Council must be used for a specific project which has been previously agreed. A reply has been received from ERM regarding the Offshore Windfarm. They have answered our questions as best they can, but stressed they don't have all the answers yet. They will keep us informed at each stage, and have assured us the work will not start until 2008.
Mrs. Meadley said that stretch of road outside Elmfield still needs to be repaired.
Cllr. J. F. Robinson suggested contacting Mike Peeke of Highways Department to try and get something done soon as the situation has now become dangerous. Traffic is still going too fast through Skeffling and this is making the problem worse.
The meeting closed at 8.30 p.m.
Date of next meeting: 4th October 2005
