County Solicitor - Jan Shadbolt
Schedule of Election Fees and Charges for 2017 Quadrennial Elections, based upon the framework of fees paid in previous elections, approved under delegated powers (Appointments & Remuneration Committee Minute 4, 19 September 2012)
Approved, following consultation with Deputy Returning Officers and Devon Chief Executives
The administration of the County Council elections is undertaken by the relevant District Councils on the County Council’s behalf and the fees are a requirement to facilitate that and secure the employment of necessary staff to work at, on and during the elections
Not paying fees impracticable, as would be maintaining fees at existing levels because fees have not been increased for last 2 elections and need uprating to reflect living wage.
The County Returning Officer’s fee is based on those paid to Deputy Returning Officers. The DRO’s fee will decrease as a consequence of the revised electoral boundaries coming into effect for these elections
