HUNTINGDON has a new town clerk following the promotion of Karen Cameron, who has been deputy clerk for five years.
Ms Cameron, replaces Mike Kennedy who left the authority in May.
She has been acting town clerk since Mr Kennedy left after a disagreement with the then mayor, Councillor Jeff Dutton, who then resigned from the town council.
Ms Cameron said: "I'm delighted to have the support of the members and staff at this time as the council's leading officer.
"Huntingdon is an attractive and important market town whose face is becoming more vibrant, with a growing population and commercial expansion evident daily.
"One of the greatest challenges we face is to encourage and sustain the growth of community involvement in local decision making, and I'm extremely confident that the vision, direction and skills of our current administration will ensure that we will both achieve this and continue to successfully meet our objective to provide high quality services that meet the needs of local people".
