Is Key decision?: Yes

Council considered a report submitted by the Head of Housing and Health and Acting Head of Legal and Democratic Services seeking approval of an approach to other authorities within Hertfordshire to request the services of a member to fill a vacancy on the Council’s Independent Remuneration Panel.
The Head of Housing and Health and Acting Head of Legal and Democratic Services said the Panel comprised five members, and that it was currently necessary to fill a vacancy. It was expedient to do so through obtaining the services of an existing panel member from another authority.
Councillor L Haysey proposed, and Councillor P Boylan seconded, a motion to support the recommendation as detailed. The motion being put to the meeting and a vote taken, it was declared CARRIED.
RESOLVED – (A) to approve that whenever a vacancy on the Council’s Independent Remuneration Panel arises, other Hertfordshire authorities are approached in the first instance to request the services of the authorities’ remuneration panel members to serve on the Council’s panel; and
(B) that the Head of Legal and Democratic Services be granted delegated authority to consider and confirm appointments of Independent Panel Members approached in this way.
