Its nearly 2 months since the York Council’s Chief Executive was last seen at West Offices.
Her diary is now published on “Open Data” and reveals that she had a meeting with the Strategic Director of Yorkshire Sport on 30th May. There is nothing in the diary since then.
In her absence on – what is assumed to be – sick leave, Ian Floyd will fill in. Ian Floyd is an able and experienced local government officer and he deserves the full support of the whole of the Council during what will be a taxing period
The Council also has a vacancy for a Director of Governance so the headquarters team looks particularly light at present.
It may be another 4 months before the Chief Executive’s position is resolved.
The additional costs of covering the absence are reported as being around £3000 a month.
