Lib Dems deplore Surrey’s continued use of high cost interim staff

February 26, 2019 11:57 AM

LibDems at County HallSurrey County Council is advertising yet again for temporary staff with salaries in excess of £90k. The latest is for a Programme Manager to oversee the move from County Hall.

Cllr Chris Botten, Leader of the Liberal Democrats at Surrey County Council, said:

"The use of temporary staff runs the risk that if they fail to deliver long term solutions to the problems set, they are long gone before the problems come to light but are enriched by their generous salary.

"Liberal Democrats believe that the County Council should be using the resources of the Boroughs and Districts to support major projects and ensure that the salary bill for local government in Surrey is capped while cuts are having to be made. Residents cannot accept that large salaries are added to the payroll while their services are being lost and degraded."
