HEDON TOWN COUNCIL has a vacancy for a new Councillor due to the resignation of Sarah Jordan.
Sarah had not been a regular attendee at the meetings for some time and notified the council recently that she could not give the role the commitment it deserves.
A by-election to elect a new councillor will be held if 10 or more electors from Hedon request this. Those wanting to claim an election need to write requesting one to the Chief Executive of East Riding of Yorkshire Council at County Hall, Beverley, East Yorkshire, HU17 9BA, by Wednesday 6th March 2013.
If an election is not requested by the 6th, then Hedon Town Council can co-opt a member from those residents that may have expressed an interest in becoming a councillor.
Those wanting to discuss the role of a councillor can contact the Town Clerk, Mrs Joanna Richardson at e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01482 898428 at the Town Hall from 9:00am to 3:00pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
Note: There is a commitment in taking on the role of Councillor which involves attending meetings and sub-committee meetings, preparing for meetings and involvement in the governance of the town; Hedon Town Council regularly holds three sub-committee meetings in one night.
