The council will spend money on feeding school children during half term but wont do the jobs we pay them for such as maintenance of roads, lighting, drains etc. Typical council. They are also going to waste our money on the crown buildings, they said they have applied for planning which they will grant themselves and its obvious its going to happen as they put the fence up before it was announced. The plans I have seen are a building which is not in keeping with others in the area and will just look unsightly.
The money for free school meals during the holidays was provided as part of an £11m package across Wales handed out by the Welsh Government. So the money provided to WCBC for this is for this purpose only and can’t be spent on anything else.
The issue of the lack of spend on roads, lighting and drains has been going on for years and of much discussion on the forums. I suspect a lot of it is to do with the continued austerity for Councils across the UK as we always hit a funding shortfall every year and cuts are rife. I expect this will be one of the worst years in recent history as Council Tax receipts will be down significantly as people are unable to work and therefore their ability to pay.
I can remember when there was a giant pothole outside Wetherspoons and poor Mrs Councillor X and her mobility scooter fell into it.
I was in such a panic but went straight out to help her after i finished my pint of Old Leghumper and a whisky chaser.
A hero is someone who understands the responsibility that comes with his freedom.
