Air travel included.
The York Council has appointed a new travel agent. They have gained a contract expected to be worth around £100,000 a year. They will deal with the Councils rail, hotel and “air” travel requirements.
Last year the Council spent £124,194 on this type of travel.
The decision was taken earlier in the week by a Council official at a behind closed doors meeting. No prior notice of the meeting was provided and the decision is not subject to “call in”.
Curiously the decision notice is listed as being taken on “4th May 2016” which isn’t until next Wednesday.
