Troubled council seeks new chair.
The election of the new head of Sully Community Council will be the main item of business at the annual meeting of the authority on May 10.
It follows a vote of no confidence in the previous chairman, Councillor Ray Cox, who remains a member of the authority.
In March, police were asked to investigate after an alleged confrontation between Coun Cox and council clerk Brian James at a public meeting of the authority.
Police decided to take no action over the matter.
The alleged fracas was the culmination of at least six months of disharmony at the council.
Before the current round of controversy, former clerk Neil Brown publicly resigned at a meeting of the council, unhappy with his treatment at the hands of some councillors who have since stepped down.
Council member Lino Scaglioni said he and his fellow councillors and residents hoped the election of a new chairman or chairwoman would herald an era of harmony at the council.
"I hope that afterwards proper work will be done, the sort that people expect the council to do."
He continued: "I think we should officially apologise to members of the Sully community for letting them down so badly."
