Banes councillors vote to keep chief executive
A committee of Bath and North East Somerset councillors has voted to keep the position of chief executive.
The post is currently held by John Everitt, who is paid £178,000 a year and may retire in the autumn.
The restructuring implementation committee recommended the post should not be shared among senior officers.
A final decision will be made by the full council at a later date. The authority is attempting to reduce its management costs.
In February, the then Conservative-run Bath and North East Somerset Council (Banes) said it needed to make cuts of £2.6m.
Since then, the Liberal Democrats have taken over the authority with the backing of Labour.
