Cllr Joyce Lucas uses meeting time to blames one Councillor for Oakham Town Councils two years of failings

Cllr Joyce Lucas uses meeting time to blames one Councillor for Oakham Town Councils two years of failings

In this incident Cllr Lucas our tree warden blames me for her failings and the office staff.of the past
two years. A lost report has been found and it was shown many jobs marked as urgent
have not been carried out on trees which the town council is responsible for.







Councillor Lucas read out the following prepared statement once again attacking.
'The reason the tree survey has been left until now, in the last two years there has been unprecedented  insinuations lies and harassment from one serving Councillor. (my name was written on the prepared paper but not read out) but not only against the officers but against fellow Cllrs due to the stress and extra work load this has caused much work and has had to be prioritised and the work on the trees
are now being addressed I could go on about this problem but I think I have said enough to point out that the problems we have at OTC are not of the officers or of the majority of the fellow Councillors
making. This has gone on long enough that we have such harassment from one Councillor I am sorry
i think this survey although all though its old should be done now.because we have already had some more branches off and we can not wait........... Clr Lucas concluded This is getting ridiculous no work is getting done because we are constantly asked to get quotes.

Oakham Town Council believes it does not need to obtain any quotes and we should agree
that all the tree works should go to Paul Ford her friend of many years the same person who was
paid to store our Christmas lights many thousand of pounds in a muddy field which resulted in
them having to be disposed of.

After Cllr read the statement I politely objected and pointed out how I had supported her at the budget meeting by supporting her request for £13,000 for the tree budget so an up to date
report could be produced. She said I was not telling the truth. Her conduct is becoming totally
unacceptable.
