    Minutes:

    The Head of Legal Services (CCC) introduced the report which sought authority from the Committee to enter into an agreement with Canterbury Environment Company Limited for the provision of Back Office Services from East Kent Services (ICT).

     

    The Chair invited debate on the matter. The proposals in the report were then proposed, seconded and when put to a vote agreed.

    For the proposal: Councillors Bartlett, Carnac, Everitt, Fitter-Harding, Holloway and Whitehead (6)

     

    There were none abstaining from or against the proposal.

Provision Back Office Services to the Canterbury Environment Company - Annexe exempt from publication

    (This information is exempt from publication as it relates to the financial affairs of the council.

The Council believes that at present the benefit of maintaining these exemptions outweighs the benefits of disclosing the information.)
