18.    Notice of Motion Proposed by Councillor McLean, seconded by Alderman Finlay

          ‘That Council review the policy around the ‘Citizen’s Newsletter’ with a view to making the publication more cost effective.

          “After receiving a number of complaints from local people regarding Council’s “Citizens’ Newsletter”, I have been prompted to investigate its’ usefulness.

          The cost associated with design and distribution of the magazine across the Borough equates to approximately £18,348 per edition.  Over 60% of this cost relates to distribution. In the 21st century, there are more cost effective ways of communicating with citizens, by perhaps utilising our website and social media more effectively.  A significant reduced print run could be distributed in a targeted manner across the Council’s public buildings, as well as in libraries, doctors’ surgeries, schools and churches.

          Councillors who are engaged with their community also provide a means of communicating with the local population.

          Bearing in mind these factors it seems only sensible Council reviews this expensive means of communicating with Citizens of the Borough’.
