Open letter from Ramsey Parish Council Town Clerk
The Town Council consists of seventeen elected volunteers and is here to represent the interests of the residents of the Town and outlying villages. Many of the daily tasks within the Town are carried out by the District Council, although paid for and monitored by ourselves, whereas any highway or street lighting issues are the responsibility of the County Council.
The Town Council meets for a “Full” meeting on the second Thursday of each month, usually followed two weeks later by a shorter meeting to discuss planning matters, alone. Both meetings are open to members of the public, starting at 7pm.
The first twenty minutes of the meeting allows you to put forward any views you may so wish. The Councillors could question you to clarify certain issues, but if you are requiring a definitive answer, this may not be given at the time. Things may need to be discussed more fully and considered at length, at which point you will be contacted with the Council’s reply.
