I CRUISED into the council offices on Friday, February 12, hoping to get an early St Valentines Day gift, but it was not to be. There was no Derwent Valley Council annual report to be found.
I’m sure that a case for delay can be presented within the context of the times we live in at the moment. Having said that, it is such an important document for all of us who are shareholders in the organisation, for those who might like to take the time, make the effort and engage with the information.
Time is needed to study and examine the document before the annual general meeting. These are two incredibly important ingredients to formulate any constructive feedback.

Editor’s note: The Derwent Valley Council’s annual general meeting is scheduled to be held on February 25. The meeting was postponed from its usual December date due to the pandemic.
So hang on a minute James T.
Are you saying we can pickup a printed paper copy of council documents from the lovely administration staff at council chambers for free??
Being old school I prefer paper and pencil and have been paying for printing at the library.
If this is so I thank you for the revelation.
The best things in life are free, as well as current council agenda documents and annual reports 🙂
There might be a charge if you are looking for older documents.
