- Chairman - will ensure that the constitution is up-held and the resident’s interests are observed, to the best of the Committee’s ability. The Chairman will co-ordinate and chair the quarterly meetings ensuring that a fair and democratic decision is reached on each agenda item, or if a majority is not reached, for the agenda item to be put to a vote by the residents. A written annual report outlining the previous year's activities will be made available at the AGM to all residents.
- Treasurer - will ensure that all funds are collected promptly, that all payments are paid promptly and that the bank account is managed in a professional manner and does not accrue any unnecessary bank charges. An annual statement will be made available to all residents during the AGM as part of the annual report. The Treasurer will issue a notice for payment of the annual Road Fund Charge during October to November each year. The Treasurer will issue a notice reminder of late payment of annual Road Fund Charges in January.
- Secretary - will ensure that an agenda is presented at all meetings and accurate minutes are taken and circulated to committee members within two weeks of each meeting for review and agreement. Once approved by the committee, a copy will be posted on the DR web page and an electronic copy will also be sent to any member of the DRF who requests one and who has previously supplied the committee with an email address. A hard copy of the Minutes will be sent to residents who have not supplied an email address if requested. These actions will take place within the following week, meaning that residents can view a copy within a period of three weeks from each committee meeting.
Vacancies - Join our Committee as a invited guest to be the first to find out what is going on along the road. We meet just a few times a year for about one hour and we are always grateful for new members.
Every part of the road has its own interests and things to improve. We need your help to explore and test new ideas.
Reading Borough Council takes our views seriously and we have sometimes acted as a local 'Pressure Group' where there is widespread support for a person or group intent on getting something done!
