Council members’ expenses are now public on an online, quarterly, itemized basis rather than the printed, 5 month after-the-year-was-over, annual aggregated basis that had been in place on the city’s website. It’s an idea that I put forward to council quite a while ago – well before being elected.
The current year-to-date summaries for council for 2015 are here.
Previous YTD expenses for previous years are here.
See Take-Aways – What I’ve been Up To – Elected Officials Seminar for a report on one of my expense line items.
Key take-aways for me were the basic survival tips for newbies, backgrounders on procedures and the reasons why and robust discussions on role clarity.
I’m happy to discuss and explain my expenses if there are any questions.
