For the first leg of our Town Hall Rich List Roadshow we paid a visit to the Kent coast. More specifically Hythe where the local authority had the most council bosses in the county receiving remuneration in excess of £100,000.
Setting out our stall in the town centre, residents we spoke to were staggered by our findings. Many questioned if execs were worth the money particularly given a recent 3 per cent increase in council tax. Even a council employee said her bosses were paid too much!
