Zinger–I did not mention the British Legion neither did I infer that they should pay for his attendance at Remembrance Sunday.
The Continental Street Market took advantage of the Mayors services when he held up his sausage in Hope Street. It is the commercial side of the duties that could see a return. However, as Matt pointed out if people had to pay they would in all probability not call on his services.
I am not entirely against having a Mayor. But, if WCBC are so short of funds, maybe a charge for the Mayors attendance at a function could be put in place. If this suggestion did not bring in enough to recover the costs, then next year do away with the role.
Wrexview —-That is too simple an answer. This is WCBC we are dealing with.
What about the impact the prison has on the Maelor Hospital.?
CW. I will accept your figure of 42. We have reached the stage were all Councillors not on the Executive Board should return to their Community Councils in an unpaid position and let the mighty 10 get on with it.
The Council is made up of Independent 16. Labour 12. Conservative 9. Wrexham Independent 8. Plaid 3. Lib Dem 2. Non Aligned 2.In total 52.
The Executive Board is made up of Independent 5. Wrexham Independent 3. Conservative 2, Total 10.
It disturbs me that surely everybody wants what is right for Wrexham, yet there are 19 Councillors from various groups that have no say on any matter.
Rob– You say comparing it to the original plan seems pointless at the moment as it is clear that has been adjusted.
Nevertheless, the Council made the decision to go ahead with this, based on the report of Fourth Street. Now that income seems to not come up to expectations, I wonder if the expenditure has reduced also.
The Council and Cllr. Hugh Jones sold this to the town,I believe we were led up the garden path.
Liam– The Fourth Street Report projected car park receipts to be £159k. This was allowing for a charge of £4 for 2 hours, since that projection the Council have reduced the charges.
The projected income was £159k with overheads of £95k leaving a net income of £64k.
It remains to be seen if the final figure after the reduced tariffs will come in at £64k net income.

CW– There will be a shortfall of around £20k with rents being discounted based on all 20 units being let continuously for the 12 months. I do not know the number of stalls still available to let but this will increase the £20k figure.
In the Business Plan by consultants Fourth Street the Rent Roll for the markets side was put in at £194k. With this shortfall and no Café/Bar at £32k it would seem that the final return will be quite a bit below expectations. Once again the Council have messed up and let a lot of traders down.
