15. REVIEW OF THE ROLE OF THE MAYOR (Appendix K)

The Committee has given consideration to a report setting out the different roles of the Mayor and identifying areas where a Mayor could face potential financial difficulties in carrying out this public role. The Committee agreed that before taking any decisions on the future role of the Mayor, it was important to consult with the people of Waverley to evaluate what they believe the purpose and role of the Mayor should be.

The Committee agreed that the matter should be included on its own Work Programme as a review for this year and next, and that further research should be undertaken by way of questionnaires to the Citizens' Panel and Members. It was also considered that it would be useful to invite former Mayors from within the Borough and across the County to submit their views on the function of the Mayor, and attend the Committee if they wished to do so. The Committee was, however, concerned about the budget problems identified in the report and particularly difficulties about funding the Volunteers' Garden Party.

Recommendation

The Executive is recommended to give consideration to an appropriate budget for 2004/2005 which could be used to fund the Mayor's annual Volunteers' Garden Party.
