Oakham Town Council Votes Not To Pay Oakham Town Partnership Invoice For £31,000 Unauthorised Expenditure.
A council can not pay any expenditure that has not previously been approved by
I has never been formally made aware or made any decission to pay the pay Oakham
Town Partnership £31,000 for the employment of a town centre.
During the discussion of the agenda item I raised the matter of Oakham Mayor Cllr
Adam Lowe having copies of the Oakham Town Partnership minutes.
The agenda item report states there are no minutes.
Cllr Lowe before the meeting emailed all members to say he does have copies
of minutes which include his name and other Councillors he is not willing to name.
At the meeting I attempted to find out those names to find out who had acted unlawfully
by acting on behalf of the council with out its knowledge.. Cllr Lowe was not to keen
to answer my question and rather oddly said my name is included in the minutes?
Was Cllr Lowe suggesting I was responsible? His manner at that point of the meeting
could lead people to believe he was.
