    REPORTS FOR DECISION ITEM NUMBER 6.2 TITLE Councillor's Portfolios - Draft as at May 2016 REFERENCE 180221 AUTHOR Maina Brown, Governance & Compliance Manager Councillors are allocated portfolios so they have the knowledge in that related area to report back to the community on the progress in that particular area. Following the recent period of Official Management the attached listing provides Councillors with the current listing for information. BACKGROUND Councillors are allocated areas of responsibility (Portfolios) in Core Service and Non Core service areas. Through the Councillors, community members have access to information as to what may be currently happening or changes planned for the future in a particular core or non-core service the Council undertakes. It is expected that General Managers and Senior Managers meet with Councillors in their portfolio area regularly to keep the councillors informed on current and planned future activities in their area. It is also expected that Councillors make themselves available for these meetings and report the information back to their relevant communities. All Councillors are required to have multiple portfolios. Below is the original listing (as at September 2015) and Councillors area of preference.
