Reply to Benjami’s quote ‘ To put it simply: Councillors set policy and ensure adherence. Officers implement.’
That is correct, Officers do implement – but when public don’t agree with an agreed decision – some Cll’s jump to their defence and argue against a policy that they voted for!!
SAVE WATERWORLD !!
Regarding ‘consultants’, they come into organisation to ‘save’ money. They look at specific things, get the exsisting overworked staff to do their job for them and then submit a fancy & over complicated report of their findings. Their expert findings can save £millions but only if savage cuts are made – nothing practicle, workable or even any mention of a viable replacement – they then take their overblown fees and move on to the next one – clever stuff. Their reports are then accepted as gospell and front-line staff have to continue providing the service with slashed budgets!
WCBC have already gone through a major reduction in the scale and cost at senior management level and more & more work & responsibility is heaped upon the much lower paid officers!
