Sark to appoint senior administrator after vote passed

Sark Chief Pleas has agreed to appoint a full-time civil servant in a reversal of an earlier decision.

The position, with an annual salary of between £35,000 and £40,000, was agreed by a vote of 21-4 on Thursday.

At its Easter meeting the move to create the senior administrator role was defeated by a vote of 14-13.

The second vote was held at a special meeting after a number of conseillers said they needed more information before supporting the proposal.

At the same meeting two new members, Conseillers Hazel Fry and Robert Cottle, were voted onto the General Purposes and Advisory Committee, which was behind the proposal.
