Tonight the TDC governance and audit committee meets and on the agenda will be the TDC collection of art and artifacts.The purpose being to set the terms of reference for a task and finish group to look into the the procedures for the Museums collection. A council officer will give a report and it will be interesting to see if in the report if there is an explanation as to why the dire position of the art and artifact collection has never been brought to the attention of the members of Thanet District Council for many years.
The collection like any other council asset has a monetary value and should like any other asset be on a register. There is over whelming evidence this has not been the case.
There are missing items, misplaced items , unlisted items and incomplete audits. So the report will be very interesting explaining that to TDC members. However part of me thinks there will be a cover up maybe ? and a war of words will begin.
