The Town Council at its Annual Meeting on 13 May 2013 decided not to seek the immediate appointment of co-opted councillors following the recent uncontested election on 2 May, but instead to continue with the current nine Town Councillors for an initial six months to allow for a settling in period for the new Town Council.
The issue of co-option will be considered again following this period.
On 13 May 2013, the Town Council elected Councillor Kevin McFadden as its new Town Mayor for 2013 / 14.
Kevin, a local businessman has been on the Town Council for the past six years, and has recently, in his capacity as Chairman of the Premises Committee taken the lead in discussions with Cornwall Council over the potential freehold purchase of the public car parks and conveniences in St Just and Pendeen.
Kevin, will be supported by Councillor Neil McFadden who was elected Deputy Town Mayor.
Firstly, welcome to the new Town Council and particularly to those new councillors sitting in the chamber for the first time. I hope that you will enjoy the challenges as much as I did, and that you will continue to build on the progress made by the previous Town Council. I hope we can work together in representing our local communities and in protecting our unique environment and heritage.Read more of this news update »
