Have you brought this up with the council and if so what was the reaction?

Fellow members and staff won't give an opinion on how to proceed. Looking for independent advice.

I cannot give advice. You need your own lawyer for that. I can people provide legal information only. Generally, there is no reason why you cannot provide proof that there is no longer any pecuniary interest and then resume your regular involvement.

Are you familiar with this act, it is not on me to give any extra information, no action can be taken against me without a complaint. I'm having a hard time finding in the act what to do in the situation, the advice so far is not accurate. If you are not familiar with this act, please let me know as I have studied the act however don't understand all the terminology.Thanks,
