Bristol Council scraps £160k chief executive role
The role of chief executive at Bristol City Council is to be scrapped.
It is part of a shake-up of the management structure at the authority, announced by Bristol Mayor Marvin Rees.
The last chief executive, Anna Klonowski, resigned from the £160,000-a-year post last month.
Mr Rees said the changes would create savings of around £700,000 a year and would reduce the senior management team by seven.
The council has had three chief executives in the past 18 months; Ms Klonowski, Stephen Hughes and Nicola Yates.
Earlier this year a report found "a collective failure of leadership" at the council led to £29m deficit in its finances.
Mr Rees said: "The role of the council has to change.
"Increasing demand for our services and shrinking budgets mean we cannot continue to operate with a traditional provider model; we must redefine our role and our relationship with the city.
"We have developed a proposed senior management structure at strategic and service director level.
"In doing so, we are taking the opportunity to create a smaller team who will work with partners on delivery of our priority outcomes."
