A former WLBC employee
Leisure Services Director Dave Tilleray, features in the national press today for his retirement severance package of £337,351.
John O’Connell, chief executive of the TaxPayers’ Alliance, said ‘Despite many in the public sector facing a much-needed pay freeze to help bring the public finances under control, many town hall bosses are continuing to pocket huge remuneration packages, with staggering pay-outs for those leaving their jobs.
“There are talented people in the public sector who are trying to deliver more for less, but the sheer scale of these packages raise serious questions about efficiency and priorities.’
A previous large payment in 2017/18 cost WLBC council tax payers £260,000.
