MINUTES OF MEETING HELD 24 APRIL 2019 & MATTERS ARISING: Matters arising – Peter Garbutt felt that the Deputy Leader of the Council Ieuan Williams who had attended the LAST meeting with the Leader of the Council Llinos Medi Hughes had misled the meeting. Ieuan Williams had stated to the meeting that he did not take his salary as a councillor, however he accepts his basic councillor salary it is his Deputy Leader salary that he does not take. It was felt that he has a conflict of interest being both a councillor and the Chief Executive of Cynnal. Cllr Bryan Owen had made a formal complaint about this conflict, however the authority monitoring officer deemed there was nothing to answer to.
Minutes were approved as a true record of events and were unanimously accepted by the group.
