Resources and Governance Scrutiny Committee Membership
Scrutiny Committees represent the interests of local people about important issues that affect them. They look at how the decisions, policies and services of the Council and other key public agencies impact on the city and its residents. Scrutiny Committees do not take decisions but can make recommendations to decision-makers about how they are delivering the Manchester Strategy, an agreed vision for a better Manchester that is shared by public agencies across the city.
The Resources and Governance Scrutiny Committee has two broad roles. One is to keep a close eye on the Council's finances and the other is to make sure that elected Councillors can voice residents’ concerns in an effective way to different public services, such as the Council, NHS, Police and Fire. The Committee holds discussions with these organisations and use local knowledge of Manchester to recommend to them how they can ensure their services meet the needs of residents.
Areas of interest include finances, Council buildings, staffing, corporate and partnership governance as well as Council tax and benefits administration.
