We usually have an agenda item: Clerks Report.
Otherwise, the Clerks position includes:
Issue notices and agendas
Prepare reports and present information to be debated.
Present details of accounts for ratification
To ensure that all meetings are minuted and accurately report.
It is the function of Councillors to formulate Proposals, debate them and vote accordingly. Not the Clerk. However: as the Proper Officer then clearly the Clerks advice is needed and welcome. I am assuming that when the Agenda is formulated (by the Clerk) the usual practice/ courtesy to consult with the Chair.
