No Clerk so can two Cllrs make payments

0 votes
A PC has no Clerk/RFO. Presumably with dual authorisation set up with the Bank it falls to two of the duly mandate authorised members to raise and authorise payments to suppliers/contractors until such time as a replacement officer is recruited?

What do the Standing orders or Finance policy say? The payments to contractors have to be authorized by full council unless the SO or a policy says otherwise. When the payments are resolved the two members can then implement them.
