As reported in the local media, a “…decision to award five-figure salary rises to some of Peterborough City Council’s top earners – as they slash budgets and cut back services – has come under fire.”
Speaking to the Telegraph, LIB DEM group Leader on the City Council, Cllr Nick Sandford, said:
“I am appalled by this. It sends out completely the wrong message about where the council’s priorities are, as they make cuts to a number of services, and other council employees are only getting a one per cent pay increase.”
