    I wrote to the Independent Remuneration Panel for Wales prior to their consultation report for 2019.
    I pointed out that would it be possible to impose a reduction in the remuneration, by imposing a penalty clause of £200 or more, on each occasion a Councillor is absent from a scheduled meeting.
    It is imperative that money is spent wisely, and not on somebody who has taken no part in the business they were elected to do.

    The reply I received said:– The Panel have considered your views and have no comment to make. This is not within the Panel remit as it is not a remuneration issue.

    Do some of the Executive Board come under the term of Historical Features?

    Matt- In 1391 almost half of the inhabitants of Wrexham were economic immigrants. Sanctuary town then, sanctuary town now, nothing need change.

    Zinger, You forgot about the prison. Dumped on Wrexham as nobody else wanted it. A possible 2000 customers adding to the hospital waiting lists.

    I have also been wondering where Council Watcher has retired to. Could he have been Ian Bancroft in disguise? Now he has the CEO job he cannot comment on here. Just a thought.

    Councillor X. Who looks after us on a Saturday and Sunday when Council Top Managers and Councillors don’t work ? Do the gritters prioritise roads where Top Managers and Councillors reside?

    The Chief Executive Officer Ian Bancroft will be at this meeting on how can Wrexham become a modern market town. Only a few weeks ago he was spouting the way forward was to seek City Status. I just wish somebody knew where this town is going. Town or City?

    What is the definition of a Modern Market Town? To me Wrexham has become too spread out to be called a Market Town. I believe it is too late to bring about change in the town, because of the spread. Let us make the best of what we have at this moment in time.
    Markets as they once were, are finished. Specialist markets from time to time throughout the year can thrive, but a permanent market is not always sustainable.
    Wrexham have built up everything most people need on the outskirts, there is less need for people to come into the town centre.

    Rex Ham, I often drive to Broughton. Firstly easy parking without a cost, secondly easy access to all the shops including a super market, thirdly all shopping can be done in one go, fourthly clean tidy and free of undesirables. The extra cost if any in fuel costs to me is well worth it.
