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.
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.
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.
