Falmouth councillors say scrap network manager post

A MOTION calling for Cornwall Council to stop funding Falmouth’s community network manager was passed by councillors at the town council on Monday evening.
Councillor David Sterratt submitted the motion, which called for a letter to be written to New County Hall stating: “Falmouth is well served with the town clerk and town manager and their support staff.
“It considers that the position of community network manager for Falmouth is an additional expense on Cornwall Council which is not justified, considering the present financial climate the council finds itself in.”
Councillors, who did not debate the motion, voted by nine votes to one, with three abstentions, to support it.
Charlotte Chadwick, community network manager for Falmouth, Penryn, Helston and The Lizard, said she did understand the reasoning behind the move.
