Hello all, back in January 2020 the clerk told the council that she’s having a new office built at her home which she moved into a year or so earlier and needed new office equipment for it, what she has is old and tatty, at that same meeting the council set a budget of £1000 for new office equipment, within a week she had a new printer (old one broken?) it seems this wasn’t included in this budget, why I asked? because it wasn’t I was told, fast forward to end of April 2021 the clerk sends out an email saying she wants to order a new P.C. Filing cabinets, office chair, computer programs etc, totals some £1186:00 and can she order speakers and web cam on top? most councillors seemed happy to let her do this, I said the budget was set at £1000 only (set 16 months earlier in a previous year’s budget) is it ok to do this or not? ie go over budget and what should the procedure be as we are in a totally different budget year?
