Reports of Portfolio Holders
To receive oral reports from Portfolio Holders on current issues concerning their Portfolios, which are not covered elsewhere on this agenda.
The Environmental and Technical Services Portfolio Holder, Councillor Avey, advised the meeting that at a recent meeting with the Council’s waste contractor, ‘Biffa’, he was advised that they may experience a shortage of drivers over the coming months, due to the lack or drivers being recruited and the ongoing effects of the Pandemic. This may result in reduced services.
Councillor Murray asked that all members be kept appraised of this situation over the coming months. Councillor Avey assured him that he would do so.
Councillor C Whitbread reminded the meeting that pandemic issues were still ongoing and that if possible, meetings should be kept virtual at present.
