Blaby District Council is looking to appoint additional temporary members to Kirby Muxloe Parish Council, to ensure it remains quorate and is able to act.
In June 2013 Blaby District Council acted under the Local Government Act 1972 and appointed seven individuals to act as temporary members, after it received six signed letters of resignation from Kirby Muxloe Parish Council members.
The temporary members were all very experienced and existing parish councillors within Leicestershire.
The Parish Council still has work to do before it can hold elections and Blaby District Council would now like parish residents with an interest in their local community to get involved
Jane Toman, Director of People, at Blaby District Council, said:
“We would like to encourage new people to get involved; those who have an interest in their local community. They don’t necessarily need to have had experience of standing on a parish council before as full training will be provided.”
Those wishing to stand will need to give formal notification by Wednesday 19 March, but in the meantime Blaby District Council is keen to speak to anyone who is interested.
For more information call Jane Toman on 0116 272 5676 or Colin Jones, Monitoring Officer at Blaby District Council on 0116 272 7569.
A formal notice will appear on www.blaby.gov.uk from Friday 14 March.
