A permanent town clerk has been appointed to Seaford Town Council.
James Corrigan formally accepted the role after approval was given for his appointment by a meeting of the town council.
Mr Corrigan has been the interim town clerk since the suspension of the former clerk following the independent investigation.
James said: “I was delighted to receive the news that the council had agreed to appoint me as the new town clerk serving the people of Seaford, a town I have grown (very quickly) to like very much indeed. I am grateful for this opportunity.
“I look forward to working with and for all councillors past, present and future as well as the many groups in the town and local residents. I was attracted to stay here in Seaford as I believe the council has massive potential to deliver so many significant projects for the benefit of the town and its residents.”
