People 'have right to be furious' following council chief's departure, says opposition leader
An opposition leader at Lincolnshire County Council has said people “have a right to be furious” after it was revealed former chief executive Keith Ireland was paid £292,263 for less than six months of work.
Deputy Labour leader at the authority, Coun Sarah Parkin, said: “It’s a huge amount of money to be wasted by the council at a point we are told budgets are tight and people can’t have the services they want or need.
“The taxpayers of Lincolnshire have a right to be furious about this when you think of what they have had to take over the last few years.
