The chief executive of East Lindsey District Council Nigel Howells has retired, the authority has confirmed.
Mr Howells has been off on sick leave since April.
In a statement issued by the authority last week, the council said he had been advised by his consultant that he would not be well enough to return to work.
He has therefore retired on ill-health grounds.
Leader of the council Doreen Stephenson said: “On behalf of the council I thank Nigel for his hard work and dedication.
“Nigel has worked tirelessly to improve the council’s services to local people and for this we are grateful. I would like to wish Nigel well for the future.”
Mr Howells joined the authority in 2005.
The council has stated it will consider the chief executive’s position over the next few months.
