THREE council officers who helped spearhead the multi-million pound Isle of Wight highways private finance initiative bid are to leave the authority next year.
PFI director Jay Jayasundara, technical manager Malcolm Smith and project engineer Roger Kimpton will be leaving in March. Both Mr Smith and Mr Kimpton have notched up more than 40 years of local government service.
Mr Jayasundara, whose total remuneration in 2010/11 was £181,121, including £148,934 salary, £31,900 pension and £287 expenses, was taken on by the IW Council in 2009 to oversee the procurement of the contract.
Cllr Edward Giles, cabinet member responsible for highways, said yesterday (Thursday): “All three leave the authority with our thanks and with the knowledge they have played a full part in making a real and positive difference to the lives of residents.”
