I CONTINUE to be amazed at how accommodating FDC is with its senior employees.
Not only do we have an ex employee swanning around the aptly named (in his case) Bay of Plenty in New Zealand with �500 a week, courtesy of the council tax payer.
But we now have another senior employee who appears understandably, to have got fed up commuting from Nottingham, serving his notice from home on full pay.
Your article states that 'councillors were told of this decision by email'.

Are they not consulted about this sort of thing considering public money is involved?
I hope that when a replacement is recruited, it may be just within the bounds of possibility, that the council will have the common sense to give priority to someone who lives in the Fenland District. Preferably by promoting from within.

An arrangement where a senior employee, however dedicated, has to commute almost 80 miles each way, was never going to last on a long term basis.
