2. FINANCIAL INFORMATION
The Community Council agrees an annual budget based on the work that needs to be undertaken in the coming financial year.
The Community Council is responsible for keeping a financial reserve that is made up of money paid for the purchase and upkeep of memorial benches, money set aside for training on defibrillator use, money for Parc Adrian Sharp upkeep and a sum of money that is available for projects within the ward. In addition, the Council must keep, in reserve, a sum of money that would cover all bills for 3 months.
Once these figures are known, then The Finance Committee can calculate what is required from the annual precept from Carmarthenshire County Council and recommend to the full Community Council the precept that would allow this work to be undertaken.
3 years of financial records are published. If you wish to view earlier records please request via Contact us.
