How is Wrexham Council managing its risks?

Wrexham Council spends your money on providing services for you.

It’s really important that we manage your money well and responsibly, and that we run things properly.

Up for discussion on May 30

Our Audit Committee will meet this Thursday, May 30 to look at the annual accounts, and at what our auditors say about how we’ve done.

Jerry O’Keeffe chairs the committee. He isn’t a councillor or an employee, but an independent member of the public.

He says: “The council is a complex body which provides services that affect us all and which we rely on.

“It’s essential that people know that the council spends their money properly and that it runs its business properly and within the law.”

Mr O’Keeffe added: “This is especially important at the present time when finances are tight but people still expect quality services.”
