Honorary Aldermen pdf icon PDF 66 KB

To consider a report recommending the appointment of former councillors as Honorary Aldermen in recognition of their service to the Council.

Minutes:

The Chief Executive introduced the report and explained that Council may confer the title of Honorary Alderman on persons who it considered had rendered eminent services to the Authority in their past roles as councillors.

 

Historically, Council had conferred the title of Honorary Alderman upon its past members in recognition of both long service and significant contribution to the Authority’s affairs. 

 

The longstanding local criteria which had been applied when conferring the title of Honorary Alderman was that the person had at least 16 years service or had been a past Mayor and Chairman of the Council

 

The Chief Executive reported that a number of former Councillors fell within the criteria and had been nominated by the Group Leaders.

 

She explained that once agreed by Council, their appointments would be recognised as part of the Inauguration of the Mayor ceremony at the Town Hall on Wednesday 16 May.

 

 

RESOLVED THAT

 

the title of Honorary Alderman be conferred on former Councillors
