Oakham Town Council Annual Return 2016 - 2017

Oakham Town Council Annual Return 2016  - 2017

It is hard to believe that back in 2015 the external auditor recommended to
Oakham Town Council purchased new accounts software.

Oakham Town Council agreed to spend thousands an accounts package
special designed for parish councils.

The accounts package is simple to use, but it took Oakham Town Council nearly
two years before they started using it.

We were told the accounts package can produce reports at a click of a button

I wonder why the accounts report attached to the annual return for 2016 - 2017
 is manually typed and contains date and spelling errors.

Also why does the council think it does not have to publish the amount of public
money it paid the former Clerk to leave?
