Following Somerset Council’s recent announcement regarding its financial difficulties and the implications for town and parish councils, the agenda for SALC’s annual general meeting has been adjusted to focus on the subject of asset and service devolution.
This event is specifically aimed at councillors of member councils. Although SALC very much welcomes the attendance of clerks, we would be grateful if the clerk is, where possible, accompanied by either the council chairperson or another councillor.
Date: Saturday 2nd December 2023
Time: 10am to 3pm
Place: The Main Hall, Edgar Hall, Somerton Business Park, Somerton, TA11 6SB
A maximum of two representatives from member councils are invited to attend the SALC AGM. This can be the chairperson and the clerk, or two councillors.
