Barnoldswick Town Council clerk steps down
9:00am Saturday 19th October 2013 in News
Barnoldswick town clerk Richard Nelson has stepped down because of ill health.
“He has resigned on medical grounds,” said Coun Ken Hartley, chairman of Barnoldswick Town Council. “As a council, we wish him well in his recovery.”
Mr Nelson had served in the 16-hour per week part-time role for five years. Coun Hartley said the town council had retained the services of HR Associates to assist in appointing a new clerk.
Meanwhile, town councillor Marjorie Adams is serving as acting town clerk, a role she also had before the appointment of Mr Nelson.
“These things take time, so our timescale for hiring a new clerk would be in the new year,” added Coun Hartley.
