No, no, no...
It is not the content of the minutes which creates the problem here - it is the apparent lack of accuracy of person creating them.
We can reference the various sources which glibly state that minutes should be brief, should only record who was present and what was decided blah, blah, blah, but when we do that we completely overlook the purpose of a council is to SERVE the people.
You SERVE the people by providing a document with sufficient detail, context and accuracy as may reasonably provide an informative record of council business.
This crusade to minimise the minutes to a useless yes / no scenario is predicated upon the despicable desire to say nothing since the less we say the less we can be held to account or answer or justify.
The answer to the question is that the minutes should be accurate - regardless of their length or detail.
The PROBLEM is not the content of the minutes but rather the ability of the person recording them to achieve even basic accuracy!
Its no good treating the symptom and ignoring the problem....
