"Returning Officer" duties of Chief Executive

"Returning Officer" duties of Chief Executive should be part of the job description and no further payment made on top of an already healthy salary.  Any money received for this work should be taken as income for the council.

    I quite agree. The Chief exec cant expect to cut services here, there and everywhere and still pocket a substantial amount for 'overseeing' an election. I believe I read George Black was paid in region of £30k for being a returning officer. It should be part of the job spec.

    Absolutely agree - the Chief Executive should set an example here.
