Pendle councillors asked to share jobs to save cash
3:09pm Tuesday 8th October 2013 in News
PENDLE Council leader Joe Cooney has written to all Lancashire council leaders calling on them to look to share vacant posts above a certain pay grade.
Coun Cooney said: “All local authorities are having to work within tighter budgets and find ways to save money.
“In recent weeks I’ve seen various jobs advertised within local authorities and I believe some of these presented opportunities for councils to work more closely together and in turn make significant savings.
“I've been leader for over 18 months and we’ve talked about sharing services but we never actually seemed to get serious about it.
“I’m hoping this will kick us all into action.”
The item is due to be discussed at the forthcoming Lancashire Leaders meeting.
