Local authorities are overwhelmingly in favour of requiring monitoring officers to be legally qualified, a recent consultation by Solicitors in Local Government (SLG) and the Law Society has revealed. Some 70% of the 60 local authorities who responded to the consultation wanted monitoring officers, who are responsible for reporting contraventions of the law and cases of maladministration and injustice, to be legally qualified. Some respondents suggested the roles of monitoring officer and chief legal officer should be combined. Those opposed to the change said there was no evidence that the current arrangements were failing, and non-lawyer monitoring officers had ready access to legal support and advice from the authorities’ legal teams. SLG vice-chairman Stephen Turner said aspects of the monitoring role had become ‘almost judicial’.

These measures are through the result of in service re-design, staffing reductions, and new innovative ways of working, which has resulted in the empowerment of communities, enabling them to manage their own community facilities.A range of cumulative savings totalling £634k are projected through the Community Facilities Review, with the lease or transfer of 55 facilities either completed or in progress.The department is currently pursuing a range of measures and, although a projected overspend of 1% of the total Community and Customer Services budget is projected (£296k), this amount relates to proposed savings of £162k, which have yet to be fully achieved due to delays in condition surveys and subsequent capital works.An additional shortfall in proposed savings of hj£134k has been exacerbated by a decline in income, particularly within Leisure and Sport over a number of years. This is being addressed through a review of service provision through evidence of need and demand and a reiteration to all budget holders of the need to ensure effective control of costs. These issues will be subject of a report at a future meeting of this committee.Councillor Tom McAughtrie, who is Chairman of the Community and Customer Services Committee, said of the report;“The report demonstrates that our Community and Customer Services department is fully committed to and continues to be responsive to the needs of customers and communities despite operating in a challenging financial climate.”A full breakdown can be found in the committee report at;http://egenda.dumgal.gov.uk/aksdumgal/users/public/admin/kab14.pl?operation=SUBMIT&meet=14&cmte=CCS&grpid=public&arc=71An updated report will be presented to the CCS committee in October.
Knopp said sometimes people hear what they want to hear. The 40-member House has 23 Republicans, but just 20 of them have been aligned with the GOP caucus. Those who have not been are Reps. Knopp, Stutes and Gabrielle LeDoux, who like Stutes has caucused with Democrats. Later, Knopp said Republican Rep. Louise Stutes asked if she could nominate him. “Look at the integrity of the people in this building. You wonder why we have trouble organizing,” Neuman said, adding later: “Gary Knopp came into our caucus yesterday and said, ‘All I want to do is come back to this caucus.’ “ Rep. Gary Knopp, who left the GOP caucus in December, voted against the nomination of Republican Rep. Dave Talerico as speaker, helping sink Talerico’s nomination. Knopp was also nominated and rejected. He said he told Republicans, who pressed him on whether he’d back Talerico, that he would support “whoever is put forward. Well, at that time, that was my intent.” Knopp said having his name put forward “seems to make it about me, and that was never the goal.” FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — The Alaska House remained rudderless Tuesday, after dramatic, failed attempts to elect a speaker that left some Republicans feeling betrayed. The Kenai Republican said he was willing to be a deciding 21st vote to elect a Republican speaker to enable organization. The scheduled 90-day session in nearly one-third over, and the House still lacks an organized majority, limiting what business it can do. The votes, both of which failed 20-20, came after Knopp met with Republicans Monday. Some believed he intended to be part of their group; Rep. Chuck Kopp indicated Knopp committed to that.“Asking to come back in? Not in this lifetime,” Knopp told The Associated Press. Knopp has been outspoken in his belief that the two parties should work together and his worry that a majority organization too small in size won’t function well. It’s unclear what this means for efforts to organize. This is the longest the House has gone without a majority in charge. Tuesday marked the 29th day of the session. Big Lake Republican Rep. Mark Neuman called what happened on the floor “crazy” and questioned whether he could trust Knopp. Stutes was part of a coalition comprised mostly of Democrats that controlled the House during the last Legislature, and she offered his nomination Tuesday. Knopp voted for himself. Knopp said he was also irked by a Facebook comment from Republican Rep. David Eastman referencing how a recall effort might work. The comment didn’t directly target Knopp but was in response to a question under a piece Eastman posted to his website on Alaska legislators holding the House “hostage.”
