THE CHIEF executive officer of Slough Borough Council is expected to leave her post next week, it has emerged.

An extraordinary full council meeting has been called for next Thursday, December 22 where the council CEO, Ruth Bagley, is expected to depart. No indication has been given over the circumstances of the departure.

The agenda for the meeting was posted online yesterday (Thursday) and item three on the agenda lists a severance payment to the chief executive, for which the press will not be admitted.

She has been the CEO since 2007. Ms Bagley was in post when the government took control of Slough’s Children’s Services when Ofsted found them to be inadequate in 2014.
