Llanbadoc Community Council Councillor Remuneration - Statement of payments for 2016-2017

Llanbadoc Community Council Councillor Remuneration - Statement of payments for 2017-2018.

At the Llanbadoc Community Council AGM held on Wednesday 2nd May 2018.

The Council considered the determinations contained within The Independent Remuneration Panel for Wales 2018 report

“Where not mandated, each determination requires a formal decision by each of these community or town councils annually. A Council can adopt any or all of the non-mandated determinations but if it does make such a decision, it must apply to all its members. In all cases, any individual member may make a personal decision to elect to forgo part or all of the entitlement to any of these payments by giving notice in writing to the proper officer of the council. In the event of a member of the council standing down during the year, it is a matter for the council to decide whether or not to reclaim any payments made.”
