Is there any legislation that says apologies for missing a meeting can only be sent to the Clerk? (Wales)
One of our Councillors has recently had an experience that left her traumatised, not council related. She withdrew from any communication with anyone, by phone or email. However she has now opened up to me recently (Chair until this evening). She told me yesterday she did not feel able to attend this evening's Annual Meeting. I informed the Council of this at the meeting but the Clerk refused to note it as an apology stating they can only go to her. I have checked our standing orders and there is nothing in them about sending apologies.
