Adjournment ‘within rules’

The CHIEF Executive of Erewash Borough Council has told the Advertiser that it is not unusual for council meetings to be adjourned.

Jeremy Jaroszek said: “Although not a common occurrence, a procedural motion, ‘to adjourn a meeting’, by any member is not particularly unusual for councils.”

When asked about the public’s reaction to the meeting Mr Jaroszek said: “We actively engage with the local community and encourage our residents to take part in the decision making process by attending council meetings.

“Our aim is to strengthen accountability by giving residents the power to influence the services provided to them through participation and choice.”
