Community Library Energy Costs (Exemption Paragraph 3)

Minutes:

The Sub-Committee considered proposals to amend the contractual arrangements for the County Councils contribution towards fuel costs for Community Managed Libraries (CMLs), from a fixed cost basis to a consumed units basis. The change was required to prevent the CMLs experiencing unintended financial difficulties as a result of universal increases in fuel costs. Existing arrangements to monitor and control consumption would remain in place.

 

Resolved – that the current model and financial contribution by the County Council for utility costs for Community Managed Libraries be amended from a fixed cost (£) to annual usage (Kw/h)basis; the Assistant Director for Commercial and  Assets to be authorised to take all action to implement this change in the lease agreements with the relevant organisations.
