Ludlow Town Council "beleaguered" and "in meltdown"

I have not blogged about Ludlow Town Council lately, but it seems it is just as dysfunctional as ever.

The Ludlow & Tenbury Wells Advertiser reports:
Ludlow Town Council is in ‘meltdown’ according to outgoing mayor Tony Pound who has called for it to be dissolved. 
And he dropped a bombshell on the beleaguered council by saying he’s quitting his seat, following his failure to win another term as mayor, and warning the authority faces a financial crisis. 
His resignation along with his daughter Mandy Phillips, from the two Clee View seats, leaves the town council with just seven members none of them elected. 
At a heated annual meeting Mr Pound was defeated by five votes to four for the role as mayor for the coming year. 
The authority now faces having to try to co-opt eight new members.
