Work in Progress

This is a very new website for us, and you will notice that it is not quite finished!  The Clerk will be working on this as often as she can to ensure it meets all the accessibility requirements.  Our Minutes and Agenda files are in PDF format, you can add a free 'extension' to your browser to access the screen reader.  Simply search for this in your browser of choice, and install the free screen reader.  When you download a PDF from our site, you should have a button that allows you to start the reader.  Please note that the AGAR documents are scanned copies as 'wet signatures' are required by law.  The means the screen readers will not pick up the scanned text.  If you require assistance with viewing our AGAR documents, please complete the Alternative Format Request form under the Contact Us Page and the Clerk will do all she can to make this information accessible for you.
