The man appointed as temporary chief executive of Eden District Council was once named in a Tax Payer’s Alliance ‘fat cat’ list.
Robin Hooper was given a £233,081 package following his exit from Shrewsbury and Atcham Borough Council plus £10,000 compensation after details of his settlement were made public.
On Thursday night district councillors agreed to pay recruitment agency Gatenby Sanderson £770 a day for Mr Hooper’s services.
The district council says it is being forced to save between £1.1 million and £1.5m over the next four years.
My comment: Paying the equivalent of £165,000+ a year for an agency CEO is not a good start! Particularly since he was only on £87,000 for doing the same job at Shrewsbury and Atcham.
