Suffolk County Council’s chief executive position to be discussed today
THE future of Suffolk County Council's chief executive Andrea Hill should become clearer today.
The authority's dismissals appeals committee is set to meet at St Edmund House, in Rope Walk, Ipswich, this afternoon.
Officially the meeting will be open to the press and public, but the third item on the agenda is a motion to exclude the press and public because 'exempt information' is due to be discussed.
The meeting will then consider a report by the strategic human resources manager (reward and performance) which has also been withheld.
The meeting is a follow-up to the meeting of the committee on June 3, which considered a report by London-based law firm Wragge and Co about 'anonymous whistle-blowing allegations' about the chief executive.
After that meeting the council issued a statement saying: 'The committee was able to resolve some of the allegations.
'However it felt that a number required further investigation.'

Mrs Hill has not been at her desk since April 18, the day Mark Bee was elected leader of the ruling Conservative group at Endeavour House.
She began a long-planned holiday on April 19 and her leave was extended on the day she was due to return to work, May 5, while the investigation began.
