At the September meeting the Council were notified by East Northants District Council that the due processes had been followed and that an election to fill the vacancy arising from Rob Blackburn’s resignation was not required. The Council were therefore free to co-opt a Councillor to serve until the next election date in May 2019.
The Clerk reported that one candidate had applied for co-option. Mrs Chris Johnson was proposed, seconded and unanimously co-opted to the Council. Cllr. Johnson attended her first meeting on Wednesday 18th October and is scheduled to attend a training course “Off to a Flying Start” on November 15th. We welcome Chris to the Council and look forward to working with her in the coming months..
