Read the report in Hebrides News and despair.
This is such a spectacular level of incompetence at so many levels, that you have to ask the question if the Council actually fit for purpose.
And, yes, I do fully understand the implications of what I say.

As far as I am aware, not one officer has been disciplined - beyond a slap on the wrist for the sins of others - for the huge losses incurred. Yet the buck stops in three offices - Chief Executive, Convener and Leader.
I have seen and heard evidence of other incompetencies, fraud, theft and inherent corruption that is being brushed out of sight by senior officers, rather than being dealt with and all that is doing is making the position worse; due entirely to the inability of those at the top.
But Councillors are being mushroomed ("kept in the dark and fed on bs") and accepting the self-serving view from the top that they cannot question issues because they are sub judice, confidential or subject to disciplinary issues, when the real reason is to protect those giving that advice - the culprits.
