Minutes:

(a)         Actions from the Minutes of the Meeting held on 1 March 2011

 

Referring to the penultimate action at bullet point no. 6, the Deputy Chief Executive advised that the Marketing & Communications Manager would be asked to report to the next meeting in regard to what the Council did in terms of marketing. <1>  The Chairman felt that there were three areas of the Council that could be marketed:

 

·        Licensing

·        optimisation of Council Tax; and

·        the Contact Centre

 

He suggested that the said Officer should provide Members with some idea of marketing requirements as he could not see how an entrepreneurial council could be complete without such marketing services.  He felt that an options paper would be useful as it would provide Members with an idea of how to proceed.

 

A Member agreed that Licensing would be a good product to market.

 

The Deputy Chief Executive stated that the Council was not set up to deliver a Marketing Strategy or a Business Development Strategy as the authority did not have the resource or the expertise at this present time.

 

(b)         Members’ ICT Options (Minute No. 40/11)

 

The Council’s E-Champion advised that all new Members had received their new IT equipment and were now connected.

 

(c)         Steria Insourcing Project (Minute No. 41/11)

 

The ICT Support Manager advised that a final exit meeting was being held on 8 June 2011 to sign off the contract.  The ICT Project Manager explained that although it had been a seamless transfer, there were still a number of contracts to come forth.

 

(d)         Finance (Minute No. 42/11)

 

The recommendation to carry over the unspent funding of £548,837 had been approved at the Cabinet meeting on 31 May 2011.

 

(e)         To confirm the Minutes of the Meeting held on 12 April 2011
