It was distressing and entirely predictable that to save money ADC should start with the Ashfield Show. Continuing closing public toilets, libraries and sports centres etc etc.
These are good political targets which will anger the council tax payer.
I have another idea. £1 million is 25 people earning £40K per annum. Let the leader of the council publish an audit of all employees and contractors. Then we could see how much waste could be pared from the organisation. Let’s do away with the pointless P.C. posts which do not add any value to the taxpayers life but actively annoy people.
I’m sure if the council leaders used a bit of imagination and really tried, they could do more with less as we in the private (productive) sector have had to do especially since the last Labour government bankrupted the country.
