Cabinet to meet region's politicians
30 March 2020
Powys County Council's cabinet will meet with county and regional politicians to discuss the council's response to the Coronavirus outbreak.
Cabinet members have invited the county's two MPs, two AMs and regional AMs to an online meeting on Friday (April 3) to discuss the pandemic.
Council Leader, Councillor Rosemarie Harris; "We want to share with our colleagues in the Assembly and Westminster all that we are doing to protect and care for Powys residents during this pandemic. The council has acted quickly invoking its business continuity plans so that we could direct our efforts towards supporting social care and other business critical services such as:
- refuse collection,
- homelessness and
- childcare provision for key workers.
"Friday's meeting will give colleagues an opportunity to ask questions about the council's response and raise any concerns. We will also consider how best we can work together over the coming months to do all that we can for our residents, businesses and communities during these challenging times. It is important at this time of national crisis that as politicians from all tiers of government we all work together. I hope Friday's meeting will be the first of many such events."
