TONIGHT'S Derwent Valley Council meeting was adjourned until next week due to the lack of a quorum. With four councillors absent, the monthly meeting for July was not able to go ahead.
Mayor Martyn Evans and councillors Julie Triffett, James Graham and Barry Lathey were present for the 6.30pm meeting, but a fifth member of the eight-member council was needed to make a quorum.
Cr Evans said the meeting was likely to be reconvened on Thursday evening next week. The absences were due to illness, leave, or work commitments.
