Town Council vacancy is filled

The vacancy left on Llangollen Town Council by a recent resignation will soon be filled.

Tim Palmer, who had served on the council for a short while, recently announced he was leaving as he and his family were moving to live in the United States
The process of finding a replacement then started.
After first establishing that there was no official demand for a bye-election, town clerk Gareth Thomas then sought applications from anyone interested in becoming a councillor
At last week's council meeting, he reported to members that two people had initially sent in applications but that one had withdrawn on the basis they couldn’t afford the time the role required.
This left just one applicant of whose application former mayor, Cllr Jon Haddy, said: “I can see from her CV that we couldn’t have had a better applicant.”

He proposed that she be co-opted on to the council and this was unanimously agreed by members.
The new councillor will be formally co-opted at the next council meeting.
