Town Hall reporter KEN LEE on the latest dropped bollock by the council’s administration
Jo Negrini, the Croydon Council chief executive, has refused to answer questions about her failure to have published promptly the papers for tonight’s annual meeting in the Town Hall chamber.
The agenda, list of appointments and other paperwork for council meetings is routinely supposed to be made available at least seven days before the meeting takes place.
The paperwork for the first meeting of the new administration only appeared on the council’s website this afternoon, less than six hours before tonight’s event.
The agenda includes a move for the council to conduct a review of the allowances paid to its 70 councillors.
Between them, Croydon’s councillors receive a grand total of £1,456,862 per year in payments from the council, the highest figure paid out among all London boroughs.
