Paper 10 - 2 June 2000 Meeting

ASSOCIATION OF HAMPSHIRE AND ISLE OF WIGHT AUTHORITIES

2 June 2000

THE ASSOCIATION'S BUDGET AND SUBSCRIPTIONS FOR 2000/2001

Report by the Policy Manager

RECOMMENDATIONS

(1) That the budget monitoring report for 1999/2000 be noted;

(2) That the budget for 2000/2001 be approved;

(3) That the subscription unit of 2,200, agreed by the Association in January, be confirmed (representing a 2% reduction on last year).

1. The Association's budget of 69,890 was fixed at the annual meeting last year. The main costs are related to the employment of one full time and one part time member of staff. The budget is met by the payment of "subscription units" by member authorities. District Councils pay two units, Unitary Councils three units, and the County Council pays four units.

2. The Association last considered the budget in January this year and decided to make a reduction in the subscription unit to 2,200 for the forthcoming year. The subscription unit, set at 2,400 in 1997, has now been reduced by 8% in total.

3. The monitoring report for 1999/2000 and details of the budget for 2000/2001 are shown in the Annex. The Honorary Treasurer will report in detail on the 1999/2000 accounts when they are closed for the year. The Association's financial year runs from June to May, to enable the election results to be taken into account at each Annual Meeting.

4. Following the Association's decision on membership subscriptions in January 2000, member authorities built their subscriptions into their budgets, and it is recommended that the reduced subscription unit of 2,200 now be confirmed. Following this meeting, invoices will be issued to member authorities.
