A SPECIAL meeting was set to take place last night as Uttoxeter Town Council’s plans to take over the running of all the town’s markets later this month hit a potential snag.
At an extraordinary meeting of the town council last month councillors said they were ‘prepared to consider’ the offer from East Staffordshire Borough Council (ESBC) to operate the markets, ‘with effect from the second week in November’.
However, the council requested a yearly grant of £10,000 from ESBC to run the three markets in the town and the takeover of the operation of the markets ‘in perpetuity’ rather than on a three-year licence that had been put forward by ESBC.
ESBC has responded negatively though to the council’s request to the takeover of the markets on a permanent basis.
Head of finance and asset management at ESBC Stephen Hinds said in response to councillors: “The town council can either have a one-off payment of £10,000 or a payment of £4,000 for each of the years in the three-year licence.
