Liberal Democratshave demanded that the Council apologises to local residents for wasting hundreds of thousands of pounds on the departure of Andrew Kilburn the Chief Executive.
Councillor Naheed Qureshi says: “At a time when money is tight and every penny counts, it is a scandal that Labour councillors are prepared to spend hundreds of thousands of pounds to get rid of someone.
There are many important local services that badly need that sort of cash.
It is a bit rich of Labour councillors to complain about cuts and then go on to waste money on this scale. Local taxpayers deserve a Council that spends their money responsibly.”
