I have a similar question for the council executive as well. When many of the town councils were done away with, places that had autonomy, their own budgets and oversight on how they were going to develop within their towns had those things stripped away. That was certainly the sense I got regarding staff morale as well. Is there ongoing work into looking at the workload of the executive? I often feel when something needs to be done it is passed to the county council and it is put on some engineer's desk or some director of services who already has a full desk in front of them. Is this being looked at?
