Legals costs for Sheila Wheeler and mystery case published
In announcing the total legal costs associated with the departure of Sheila Wheeler (£55,000 if you are interested) Somerset County Council have also revealed that a further £109,000 was spent defending the council against complaints made by “several individuals within the Council”. This is a not insignificant sum on a case that we are told we cannot be told anything about.
It is interesting that this should be announced in the same press release as that of the Sheila Wheeler costs. SCC tell us they are not related but does it not smack of one who “protesteth too much?”
