Hunts Council Cuts
16 December 2010, 11:22
Three senior members of staff at Huntingdonshire District Council have agreed to take voluntary redundancy as the authority tries to save money.
The chief executive, who earns £149,984 a year, is among the three people leaving next year.
In a statement, Huntingdonshire District Council says the move will save around £300,000 a year.
It's part of the authority's programme to save around £6million over the next few years, following decreased government funding.
The council's New Accommodation Project Co-ordinator and Head of Democratic and Central Services are also taking voluntary redundancy.
The duties of all three people are to be absorbed in a number of ways, including "reallocation of duties, re-designation of management responsibilities and internal restructuring".
All three members of staff will be paid redundancy settlements from money set aside to cover situations like this.
