East Lindsey District Council salaries and expenses

THE 60 councillors on East Lindsey District Council received £388,000 in salaries, allowances and expenses during the last financial year.

According to the draft annual statement of accounts, the figure compares with £390,000 the previous year.

To save money, there have sometimes been calls to trim the number of members at the Manby based authority.

By contrast, neighbouring North East Lincolnshire Council has just 42 members.

Several ELDC members also receive remuneration for serving on Lincolnshire County Council and various town councils.
