Nottingham City Council Pays Quarter of a Million 'Golden Goodbye'

The Nottingham Evening Post reports today that the City Council is paying more than £250,000 to retire Sallyanne Johnson (54), head of Adult Services. The move is part of a cost-cutting restructuring exercise.

The council will have spent £2.18M in three years on similar retirements and restructures.

"A spokesman said plans to restructure the council's management, which includes the departure of Ms Johnson and the abolition of seven other director posts, would ultimately save the authority, £671,000 a year."
