Meet Cllr. Yvonne Mosquito, former Lord Mayor of Birmingham and now Cabinet Member for Finance and Resources
She has overall financial direction within the financial strategy developed by the Leader, including best value and appropriate financial, accounting and audit controls and procedure.
The former Birmingham Lord Mayor will reflect on how the legacy of the spectacularly successful 2022 Commonwealth Games.
For example, the rebuilt Alexander Stadium is benefitting more than just elite-level athletes. The Stadium project, now undisputedly the best athletics facility in the UK is much more than bricks and mortar
It is world-class and has the wow factor but importantly it has created many things that aren’t always as visible as a shiny new venue.
From the outset the vision was clear that the redevelopment of the Alexander Stadium was about delivering a state-of-the-art sporting and community facility with real tangible legacy benefits. Commendably, the Stadium was delivered on budget and on time – despite the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic – but just as impressive has been the work with people across the city, not just in Perry Barr.
Cllr Mosquito will also make you aware of achievements not so well publicised such as the creation of a wildflower meadow and installing bird boxes along the canal to a rainwater harvesting system that captures and retains rainwater to clean boots and machinery.
