schroderLOW-KEY Harlow councillor, Paul Schroder made his first appearance for nearly five months but only stayed for five minutes!

The Mark Hall councillor was lucky enough to turn up to the special council meeting that has just one item on the agenda, the vote of the council tax increase. It was a case of meeting opened, vote, meeting closed.

The councillor, who was elected in 2011 has missed seven meetings in a row but despite that has still been able to rake in thousands of pounds of taxpayers money.

A few months ago, he stood down as a portfolio holder for regeneration, due to work commitments.

If a councillor fails to turn up to all meetings over a six month period then he can be forced to stand down and a by-election can be called.

Cllr Schroder receives just under £5,000 of taxpayers money per year for being a councillor.
