The Sub-Committee received a report which highlighted the operational and financial performance for HTS (Property and Environment) Ltd. The Company had achieved 97 percent of its KPIs up to 31 March 2018, and 100 percent up to 31 May, an outturn of retained profit totalling £412,000 to 31 March 2018, and a favourable forecast for the year of £1,095,000 to 31 March 2019.
The Sub-Committee welcomed the detail of the report and noted that HTS had achieved over 500,000 work hours without a reported accident.
John Phillips drew attention to the two KPIs in March which had been below target. The first was Detritus and Weed Growth which had seen a significant drop in performance for the quarter. However, this appeared to be a blip as performance was now above target as reported in Quarter 1.
Tree works were also below target for the final quarter of 2017/18. It was explained that tree works were carried out by a small team and the adverse weather at the beginning of the year caused issues. Performance was back above target in Quarter 1.
Councillor Purton requested that a report was brought to the next meeting of the Sub-Committee on the use of HTS vehicles outside of work hours.
