Appointed Auditor withdraws advisory notice to Pembrokeshire Council
31 Oct 2014 - 4:12pm
Revised settlement agreement with Chief Executive removes ‘unlawful expenditure’.
The Appointed Auditor, Anthony Barrett, has this morning withdrawn the advisory notice he served to Pembrokeshire Council on 28 October 2014.
A revised settlement agreement, to terminate the employment of the Chief Executive, has been agreed by all parties - in which the unlawful expenditure has been removed. The overall amount of the settlement has been reduced by £52,760.
The Appointed Auditor, Anthony Barrett, served Pembrokeshire County Council with the advisory notice because he had reason to believe that the Council’s decision to enter into a settlement agreement with the Chief Executive would incur unlawful expenditure.
