Warwick Smith / Stuff

A view of the Rangitīkei River near Marton after the 2015 floods.

A rural council is reluctant to hand over its drinking water, stormwater and wastewater infrastructure, but a resident says it couldn’t happen sooner.

Simon Loudon, a Rangitīkei resident for 17 years, sent a letter to the media saying the district council was dishonest in its consultation on the Three Waters reform, not giving residents enough time to understand the information.

In August, the government released information to local authorities and asked them to provide comments by the end of September. As no decision needed to be made, formal consultation with residents was not necessary.

Loudon said the council provided information to residents in a letter dated September 16, requesting comment, and held a social media question-and-answer session the next day during working hours.

“It is spurious and insulting to residents and taxpayers … [They] make it clear that “that” will decide and “that” will present a very selective point of view, “he wrote in the letter.

“I am saying that the central government regulates the stagnant waters of Rangitīkei.”

He said Thing his frustrations with the board extended beyond the consultation and the way water services were provided.

“The water in Marton was disgusting from the day we moved in,” he said. “Sewage is a problem at Marton, so they send it to Bulls, but this problem was raised in council 12 years ago.”

According to several annual reports released by the council, he often spent significantly less than what he announced in his annual plans. He was regularly non-compliant with these services.

In a report presented to the municipal infrastructure and assets committee on August 12, to June 30, four of their seven wastewater permits were non-compliant after exceeding discharge limits or for having too much E. coli.

Manawatū District Council did not believe its residents would be better off with the reforms as its infrastructure was highly rated. He was also contracted by Rangitīkei council to carry out work on its water supply systems.

At a public meeting in Feilding on September 15, Manawatū City Council infrastructure manager Hamish Waugh said Rangitīkei had underinvested in its infrastructure.

Rangitīkei council chief executive Peter Beggs said their long-term plan, adopted in July, included significant investments in water infrastructure.

This would solve problems like the taste of Marton’s water.

Beggs said the letter was falling and the live social media broadcast was not a formal consultation, but a chance to encourage comment.

* Correction: An earlier version of this article reported that Rangitīkei General Manager Peter Beggs said Waugh or Loudon was factually incorrect. Beggs said the email Stuff sent him was factually incorrect. The email conveyed the men’s remarks. (Updated September 23, 2021)

Edinburgh City Chambers needs a change at the top, says Iain Whyte (Photo: Neil Hanna)

A powerful city council like Edinburgh should be able to challenge national policy and decide its own priorities on behalf of the local population.

That is why it was interesting last week to see the SNP leader of the council appeal at his party’s conference for “full and transparent funding” and “local flexibility” for the councils. In a party as clearly centralized as the SNP, he must have had permission for this courageous gesture. You might even think there was a council election coming up.

The problem is, the evidence to suggest that this call could deliver just isn’t there. Over 20 years of decentralization have seen the power and influence of councils shrink. This centralization accelerated considerably under the Scottish governments led by the SNP.

The newsletter i cut through the noise

Our police and fire departments have been taken out of local government and centralized. The influence of the Scottish government on social care has grown through ‘integration’ with the NHS.

Funding is dependent on the implementation of Scottish Government policies and priorities, particularly in the areas of education and transport, and often falls short of what is needed. Global policy is governed by national priorities through “partnership councils”.

SNP council funding cuts ‘equivalent to £ 1,500 per household’, says Anas Sarwar

Unfortunately, much more centralization is to come with the SNP government’s proposals for a “National Care Service”. Cosla, which is not my favorite organization given its carefree approach to Scottish government centralization in the past, has at least gotten out of the fight this time around, with its chairman saying the obvious “the onion skin” of local government services by this government shows no sign of letting go ”.

There is also a huge flaw in the chief council’s stated approach. For him, financial flexibility simply means new or higher taxes. Its ‘vision’ is of increased funding but spent in exactly the same way determined by the Scottish government and paid for by unidentified ‘rich’.

There is never a discussion about using what we have more effectively or finding local solutions to problems such as the education gap where using the national approach has us. actually lagging far behind other Scottish towns. The reality of “flexibility” would be more taxes for ordinary citizens of Edinburgh, such as their broken promise not to raise the council tax by more than 3% until 2022.

There was also a more dangerous call from SNP advisers at their conference. They want the public to give them even more power in the councils and over Cosla in next year’s election – they may not have liked the recent criticism. Aside from the rather frightening image of the one-party state that this suggests, it certainly wouldn’t help the independence and authority of the councils.

I’m old enough to remember the last time the councils showed real independence in the 1990s. That usually meant councils led by a party other than the Conservative government of the day. However, the political diversity involved also empowered Tory advisers to publicly challenge their own ministers when they saw a local need to be different.

Now more than ever, Edinburgh Council needs to make its voice heard loud and clear, not only on funding, but also on local decision-making. After 14 years and increasing growth of centralized government from a centralized SNP, this cannot be done by ersatz challenge from within. If you want a council with a real “local authority”, you have to change the ruling party next May.

Council chief Ash Ashbee called on central government to address governance issues within authority

Thanet’s council chief Ash Ashbee called on the central government to step in to deal with culture in the council by “asking the DHCLG for help in, in the public interest, regularizing the governance of the TDC.”

The letter, sent to MP Michael Gove, Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government (DHCLG) comes amid ongoing disciplinary and grievance proceedings at the authority that have racked up a legal bill of more than 733 £ 000.

Of the costs incurred up to June, £ 114,000 relate to overall process management, £ 111,000 for internal processes under board oversight and £ 22,000 for external employment tribunals.

Anticipated / potential future costs are split between £ 78,000 for concluding internal Thanet Board processes and £ 408,000 for external employment tribunals.

A review of Thanet District Council’s finances also revealed “significant challenges” due to further erosion of reserves.

In a report to be discussed by cabinet members on Thursday, the “multiple financial risks” facing the local authority are highlighted as well as the need for action to improve financial management.

Cllr Ashbee said: “Since I took over the leadership of Thanet District Council on June 3, 2021, it has become clear to me that the governance of this local authority is not acceptable in its current form.

“Following a meeting with the then Secretary of State for Local Government in Margate earlier this month, I have now written to new Secretary of State Michael Gove to formally invite the MHCLG to provide the intervention needed to rectify the situation.

“I have done this in what I believe is in the public interest and in the interest of the residents and businesses of Thanet.”

In March, Thanet’s advisers on the governance and audit committee called for action “as soon as possible” to review the culture of authority.

Then-committee chair Mike Garner said the review, which was written for 10 days in the 2021-2022 fiscal year, needs to be “prioritized.”

The Thanet Green Party member added: “My suggestion is that this is one of the first things to be done.”

But the review could not take place until the investigations into staff grievances and disciplinary proceedings handled by the Investigation and Discipline Subcommittee (IDSC) were concluded. It was said that this would lead to an overlap and mean that some issues could not be discussed openly.

There have also been complaints and counter-complaints involving all four members of the management team – CEO Madeline Homer, Gavin Waite, Tim Willis and chief oversight officer Tim Howes, who has since been suspended from his duties. last december.

Mr Willis was also suspended in 2019, but was subsequently cleared of all allegations.

There is at least one staff grievance that has been dragging on since 2019 and is still unresolved.

The situation prompted Cllr Ashbee to seek government intervention.

However, the council’s chief executive, Madeline Homer, said staff were “shocked” by the news.

She said: “The staff are shocked and surprised by this action by the leader, which appears to have been taken without consultation or support between the parties, and certainly without discussion with the management team.

“The Board approaches the conclusion of various grievances and disciplinary matters, with the full knowledge and support of the external auditor and the Chief, who herself is a member of the relevant grievance and discipline committees.

“However, the council will provide all the information the Department of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) needs to act in the best interests of Thanet, his residents and his businesses.”

Thanet’s Labor leader Rick Everitt said his party called for Cllr Ashbee’s resignation and said she was “shirking her responsibilities as leader and seeking political cover from the Conservative government as she should take charge “.

Cllr Everitt said he previously asked the external auditor to report on the governance and culture of the organization, which she is expected to do soon, and expressed concern that this is an attempt to replace an appropriate process with a political solution.

He added: “I am concerned that his action will cost the council taxpayers even more money if it infringes on individuals’ employment rights and affects the chances of success of Ramsgate’s leveling offer. , because it will undermine confidence in Thanet at the central government level.

“” Cllr Ashbee didn’t even have the courtesy to discuss her actions with me, which is very disappointing as the working relationship between the two main parties has been good since 2019 and that includes between the two of us. I am sorry that she has now chosen to act in this partisan manner and it seems to me that she is influenced by seasoned Conservatives and others with limited understanding of the issues rather than making her own judgments.

“To appeal to the ministry is to admit bluntly that it cannot do its job. However, she should resign and make way for someone who can. “

North Thanet MP Sir Roger Gale

However, the leader’s actions were supported by North Thanet MP Sir Roger Gale, who said: “Cllr Ashbee has acted entirely within his remit as elected representative and leader of Thanet District Council. She has my full support in the action she has taken.

Thanet’s Green Party advisers have also expressed support for Cllr Ashbee’s decision.

Cllr Garner said: “It has been clear for a very long time that action must be taken on this serious problem.

“Indeed, we were elected in May 2019 on a platform that included addressing it and we called for openness and transparency.

“Recently we have seen the legal fees associated with the ongoing IDSC continue to exceed the £ 750,000 mark and we will hear later this week of other significant financial risks that could reduce our reserves to an unacceptably low level.

“We hope that this intervention will finally allow us to resolve the long-standing governance and cultural issues within the commune and to work for the good of all the inhabitants of Thanet. “

A department for upgrading, housing and communities (formerly the Department of Housing, Communities and Local Government), the spokesperson said.: “We are aware of the concerns raised regarding the governance of Thanet’s board and will remain in close contact with the board.”

Support from the GMB union

Frank Macklin, regional organizer of the GMB union, said: “The GMB union welcomes the news that the Thanet board chief has written to the government outlining his concerns shared by the GMB union.

“This is a truly courageous move that will see Councilor Ashbee’s character and reputation attacked by others who could and should have acted sooner, I wrote to Councilor Everitt asking what the result of his own was. governance report that he and Mrs. Homer, the executive director of Thanet District Council, at the instigation of the Local Government Association over a year ago. I asked if the report had already been completed and if so, what were the results and recommendations. “

Mr Macklin says concerns about bullying were raised two years ago and that a member who made an allegation should now see their role redundant in a “restructuring”.

He added: “The outstanding complaints from our GMB members against (the top leaders) have been inaudible for over a year now and Thanet District Council ignoring recommendations from not one but two independent people recommending that all outstanding complaints be investigated. emergency. One of these independent people is a highly respected QC. So if Councilor Ashbee’s letter of concern means that Thanet District Council is finally under investigation for mismanagement and governance, the GMB will offer our full support to this process.

Mr Macklin said Cllr Everitt should work with the head of the board rather than call for him to step down, adding: “The GMB union will support Councilor Ashbee and any other body that supports the government in addressing the many serious issues we are facing. believe are preventing Thanet District Council from providing a safe working environment for its employees and providing a service that the local tax-paying public can be proud of. ”

ResQ, a specialist in high-growth outsourced contact centers, appears ready to provide its services to the central government.

The company headquartered in Hull has secured a place under Crown Commercial Services as an Approved Supplier.

It is one of 18 companies to be included and is described as recognition of the bold steps the company has taken to align its capabilities with the needs of Whitehall departments and their agencies, non-ministerial government bodies and decentralized administrations.

Along with government, NHS bodies, local authorities, police, charities, voluntary and private sector companies also use the framework as a guarantee of quality.

Matt Marshall, chief commercial officer of the company which will become a £ 50million in revenue entity this year, said the listing is expected to “supercharge ResQ’s growth ambitions”.

“We have experienced extraordinary growth over the past year and this latest achievement marks the start of another exciting chapter for our rapidly evolving business,” he said.

“As we grow more and more, we plan to use our thriving customer relationships, ever-growing digital capabilities and strong team spirit to inspire new successes. “

By working with companies like Vodafone, British Gas, Talk Talk, Sky, NPower and Scottish Power, the company delivers omnichannel customer experiences, using the latest cloud technology.

Mr Marshall believes the ability of the team of nearly 2,000 to serve customers across multiple channels – via a unified solution – is a key differentiator with the UK government adopting a digital-centric strategy.

Automation and AI tools to simplify the customer and employee experience are also available for ResQ, just over a month after opening a third location – and a second in Hull – in the iconic Hammonds of Hull building.

The four-year framework is split in two, with ResQ in the first “batch”. Companies are highly recommended there for providing many contact center services, including service delivery; people; transformation advice; facilities and technology.

NPDC to discuss central government three-water reforms at public meeting

The New Plymouth mayor and district councilors are expected to consider comments on Three Waters’ proposed reforms at a public meeting next week.

Under the central government’s proposal, responsibility for providing New Zealand’s drinking water, wastewater and stormwater services is shifted from 67 boards to four water utility entities (WSE).

The NPDC would join a WSE serving 800,000 people covering Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Taranaki, as well as Whanganui, Ruapehu and Rangitikei. While the boards will be enshrined in law as owners of the assets under the proposal, they will not be financial shareholders. Instead, all financial aspects will be managed by a governance board.

The NPDC will get at least $ 31.5 million from a $ 2.8 billion fund the government has established to help implement the changes and offset the costs incurred.

A report to a special council meeting on Wednesday, September 21 will outline what is proposed as part of the reforms and what it means for the district. A draft government feedback document will also be considered.

“It is important to understand that the Three Waters reforms are a central government proposal and that the Council is not the decision maker. We were asked our opinion on how to improve this proposal, not whether we will be part of the reforms or not. The Board approached the 8 week period provided to us, with an open mind as we work through a great deal of information, ”said Craig Stevenson, CEO of NPDC.

Like other councils across New Zealand, the NPDC has until the end of September to review the impact of the reforms, seek clarification from the Department of Home Affairs (DIA) and provide feedback to the central government.

The mayor and councilors will review a full report that suggests the following comments:

· That the governance structure and its ownership model be changed so that the entities become co-operatives owned by residents and shareholders would also elect community representatives.

· That further reflection be carried out on how to ensure that the iwi and hapū are involved in the governance of networks within their rohe.

· That the local authorities identify the strategic priorities in their existing ten-year plan and that the entities are required to undertake these projects during the first seven years.

· That additional protections against privatization be put in place.

· That the government exclude storm water networks from the proposal and that these assets remain under the control of local authorities.

That all water personnel continue to be employed in the same roles, location and with the same salary while calling on the government to invest in WITT to become a training center for the workforce of Three Waters.

· That the government undertake a more detailed assessment of blocked overheads to ensure that they are adequately funded under the “no worse off” offer.

The comments also highlight the importance for the government to engage with communities as the owner of water resources.

Galway Bay fm Newsroom – A review referred by the Registrar of Ethics on the distribution of € 180,000 in central government funding in the Municipal District of Tuam concluded that no further action is necessary.

The emergency motion requiring investigation was led by Fine Gael advisor Andrew Reddington and supported by independent advisor Karey McHugh and Fine Gael advisor Pete Roche.

The matter has now been jointly considered by County Cathaoirleach Peter Keaveney and Galway County Council Chief Executive Jim Cullen, who have concluded that there has been no violation of the local government ethics framework.

The central issue concerns a motion adopted at an April meeting where it was alleged that the € 180,000 had been unfairly distributed among four advisers and that the details of the projects contravened the minister’s instruction.

Regarding the distribution of funds, the review indicated that the decision taken was based on a motion presented, voted on and duly adopted at the municipal district meeting – and in this regard, complied with the requirements set out in the letter. of the Minister.

Another question was raised as to whether the projects described in the proposal contravened the Minister’s directives.

The review indicated that the municipal district exercised its discretion in the majority vote allocation.

He further stated that it would seem easier to pretend that the funds were used in whole or in part for something more, rather than not.

Regardless, it was stated that this is not something that could be seen as a violation of the local government’s ethical framework, or contrary to the councilors’ code of conduct.

Galway Bay fm Newsroom – A review referred by the Registrar of Ethics on the distribution of € 180,000 in central government funding in the Municipal District of Tuam concluded that no further action is necessary.

The emergency motion requiring investigation was led by Fine Gael advisor Andrew Reddington and supported by independent advisor Karey McHugh and Fine Gael advisor Pete Roche.

The matter has now been jointly considered by County Cathaoirleach Peter Keaveney and Galway County Council Chief Executive Jim Cullen, who have concluded that there has been no violation of the local government ethics framework.

The central issue concerns a motion adopted at an April meeting where it was alleged that the € 180,000 had been unfairly distributed among four advisers and that the details of the projects contravened the minister’s instruction.

Regarding the distribution of funds, the review indicated that the decision taken was based on a motion presented, voted on and duly adopted at the municipal district meeting – and in this regard, complied with the requirements set out in the letter. of the Minister.

Another question was raised as to whether the projects described in the proposal contravened the Minister’s directives.

The review indicated that the municipal district exercised its discretion in the majority vote allocation.

He further stated that it would seem easier to pretend that the funds were used in whole or in part for something more, rather than not.

Regardless, it was stated that this is not something that could be seen as a violation of the local government’s ethical framework, or contrary to the councilors’ code of conduct.

New Delhi, September 10: In a major relief for central administration employees, who retired between January 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021, the Center revised the cost allowance (DA) rates, as part of the 7th Remuneration commission.

The Center had said that the DA rate would remain at 17% for the period between January 2020 and June 2021.

Meanwhile, gratuities and cash payment of leave of central administration employees, who retired between January 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021, would have been counted based on the DA rate of 17%. . They would not have benefited from the DA rate hikes carried out during the same period.

Addressing the issue, the Center has now stated that the AD rate for all employees who retired between January 1, 2020 and June 30, 2020 will be 21%. For employees who retired between July 1, 2020 and December 31, 2020, the DA rate is 24%. For employees retired between January 1, 2021 and June 30, 20201, the DA rate is 28%.
