 18/48 ADRODDIAD Y CYNGHORYDD SIR / COUNTY COUNCILLORS REPORT

Dywedodd y Cyng. Cefin Campbell wrth yr aelodau ei fod yn gyfnod anodd o fewn y sir ar y pryd. Gyda llai o arian yn dod o San Steffan i Gymru, roedd yn rhaid gwneud rhagor o arbedion a dod i benderfyniadau anodd iawn. Roedd angen gwneud arbedion gwerth £9 miliwn yn y flwyddyn i ddod, a hynny yn dilyn y £50 miliwn a arbedwyd eisoes yn ystod y blynyddoedd blaenorol.

Byddai Prif Weithredwr Cyngor Sir Gâr, Mark James, yn ymddeol.

Roedd yn bosibl y byddai rhagor o waith yn dechrau ar Lwybr Beicio Sir Gâr, a hynny o Ffair-fach, Llandeilo.

Cllr. Cefin Campbell informed members that it was, at present, a difficult time within the county.  With less money coming from Westminster to Wales, more savings were having to be made and some very difficult decisions agreed upon.   £9 million savings need to be made during this coming year following £50 million already having been saved over the previous four years. 

CCC Chief Executive, Mark James will be retiring.

It is possible that further work on the Carmarthenshire Cycle Path may begin from Ffairfach, Llandeilo.

18/49 GOFYNIAD PRAESEPT /  PRECEPT REQUIREMENT 2017 / 2018

Gofynnwyd am ofyniad praesept 2019/2020 gan Gyngor Sir Gâr.

Nid oedd manylion costau “Goleuadau Troetffyrdd” ar gael, ond ar gyfer y flwyddyn flaenorol, y gost oedd £1752.16 (£1460.14 + £292.03 TAW).

Manylion am Derfyn Gwariant Adran 137 ar gyfer 2019/20 – sef £8.12 yr etholwr. Roedd 419 o etholwyr yn y plwyf.

Rheoliadau Awdurdodau Lleol (Cyfrifo Sylfaen Treth Gyngor)(Cymru) 1995: y ffigur ar gyfer cymuned Llangathen 2019/20 oedd 263.82.

Ymchwiliwyd i Incwm a Gwariant Gwirioneddol y flwyddyn flaenorol, ynghyd â’r gyllideb/gwariant hyd at 15/1/19.

Roedd pob maes gwariant wedi cael ei archwilio, a’r costau wedi cael eu hystyried. O ganlyniad i ansicrwydd Brexit, cytunwyd na ddylai’r praesept gynyddu, ac y dylid defnyddio cronfeydd wrth gefn a oedd eisoes ar gael, pe byddai angen.

Penderfynwyd y byddai’r praesept gofynnol ar gyfer 2019-20 yn £7,200.

Llofnodwyd y ffurflen yn briodol gan y Clerc, sef y Swyddog Ariannol Cyfrifol, a’r Cadeirydd, a byddai’n cael ei hanfon ymlaen at Adran Adnoddau Cyngor Sir Gâr.

The precept requirement for 2019 / 2020 was requested by Carmarthenshire County Council.

Details of Footway Lighting charges for the financial year were unavailable but for the previous year were £1752.16 (£1460.14 + £292.03 VAT). 

Details of Section 137 Expenditure Limit for 2017/18 – this being £8.12 per elector. There being 419 electors within the parish. 

The Local Authorities (Calculation of Council Tax Base )(Wales) Regulations 1995, the figure for the Llangathen community 2019/20 being 263.82

Actual Income and Expenditure for the previous year was examined as was the budget / expenditure to 15/1/19.

All areas of expenditure were explored and costs considered. Due to the uncertainty of BREXIT it was agreed that the precept should not increase and to use reserves already available should it be necessary.

It was resolved that the precept requirement for 2019/20 be £7,200. 

The clerk, as the Responsible Financial Officer  and  Chair duly signed the form which is to be forwarded to Resources Department, CCC.

 18/50 UNRHYW FATER ARALL / ANY OTHER BUSINESS

1.  Tynnwyd sylw’r aelodau at y ffaith bod Mr Dylan Morgan, Derwen-fawr, wedi bod yn llwyddiannus iawn wrth gynrychioli Cymru mewn cystadlaethau nofio yn ddiweddar. Penderfynwyd anfon llythyr at Mr Morgan yn ei longyfarch.

It had been brought to the attention of members that Mr Dylan Morgan, Broad Oak had very successfully represented Wales in recent swimming competitions. It was decided to forward a congratulatory letter to Mr Morgan.

2. Roedd Gwobrau Cymeriad Chwaraeon y Flwyddyn Sir Gâr yn cael eu cynnal ym mis Tachwedd bob blwyddyn, ac awgrymwyd y dylai’r aelodau chwilio am enwebiadau ymhlith ymgeiswyr addas ar gyfer y gwobrau hyn. Gwnaed nodyn atgoffa i drafod hyn eto yn y cyfarfod ym mis Medi.
