How is East Riding of Yorkshire Council structured?

East Riding of Yorkshire Council is structured under two headings; councillors and officers. 

The full council (a meeting of all councillors) is the strategic body, responsible for all decisions and oversees the work of the council. The day-to-day decision making is undertaken by the Cabinet and other committees under the council committee structure.

The operational side of the council (ie day-to-day functions) is carried out by council officers (paid staff) under the corporate council structure.
