Thanks for taking the time to review the minutes and provide feedback,
and apologies for not responding sooner - Council have given most of our
attention this week to the TBL funding issue.
>> Why post these items in the minutes?
>> I can think of 20 x 100+ reasons why in camera conversations must
happen but IMHO and with deepest respect to all newly elected council
members, including such in the minutes seems provocative.
>> Why not just leave them out?
In documenting the minutes we attempt to strike a balance between
openness and privacy; respect and transparency. There were two matters
that due to our obligations under the National Privacy Principles had to
be discussed, but not disclosed. By minuting the discussions as 'in
camera', we've tried to balance being as open as possible while ensuring
our legal (and moral) obligations are upheld.
However, if the community would prefer not to be advised about these
matters, we'd be happy to alter the format of minutes - we represent,
and work on behalf of the community so will be guided by feedback here.
