Items of importance dealt with week commencing 9th April 2018
I and the Mayor attended a conference of Devon and Somerset Councils yesterday and there were several workshops which were of interest giving Councils an opportunity to inform other Councils how they were dealing with certain issues. Some of the items of interest which I will be looking into:
Fundraising- Several Councils employed a fundraiser to support community organisations at a cost of £10,000 per annum and Frome Council managed to raise around £400,000 in new funds for local organisations.
Borrowing – Many Councils have taken advantage of low borrowing rates for Local Authorities and having looked into it I believe it will probably be the best way forward for the PBP 4 project. In certain cases one can earn more in a bond than it costs to borrow but then the Council has to way up the slightly added risk of the higher bearing securities being riskier.
Crowdfunding - A few Councils set aside monies to match fund local initiatives that meet the strategic Council objectives and the other side of the match funding was generated from matchfunding from the crowdfunding application. Councils have set up a Crowd Fund site to enable this. It does seem that Crowd Funding is the way to go in certain areas.
Community Fridge – A wacky idea ...
