Will this catch on at ‘Your Waverley’ and the other towns and villages around the borough? Perhaps absent councillors, and there are often very good reasons for non-attendance – should state exactly why they cannot attend?
Godalming Town Council Attendance Data – May-July 2019
As part of our town council level manifesto pledges, and because basic attendance was something (for some councillors especially) a huge issue in the last administration – I have requested more frequent updates on attendance and am committed to publishing these.
Please see below the data for the first 3 months of the new council.
For the next one I will be asking for a column to be added for the party, and some graphs – however, if any residents have any suggestions please do let me know.
The purpose of this is is not just petty checking- it’s to proactively manage attendance, understand reasons, help people – move meetings if required if things are inaccessible for some reason – rather than be surprised by it every half year or so.
Happy to discuss as always!
