    Katia, I think you have attributed the quote to the wrong person.

    I think you will find that that comment was made by Jimbo, not me. Just putting the record straight.

    Katia, Benjamin is correct.I did not know of Nantyglo Community Leisure I thought Wales ended at Welshpool.:):)

    I also note there has not been one mention of the fact that WCBC have managed to achieve the lowest percentage increase in Council Tax in the whole of Wales, without resorting to the ‘advice’ of the armchair economists who frequent these forums.

    I would personally rather pay a 5% increase to keep the facilities that we already have.Provided that WCBC manage those facilities in the future,better than they have done in the past.I do not hear of any other authority in Wales closing down Leisure activities.

    There has to be an incentive to a prison officer to move to Wrexham’s new prison.I do not know how many officers are required but they certainly need homes.

    Have you thought of HOMES for Prison Officers?

    £138,613, £120,000, £250,000 figures quoted from the last few posts. My word, there is a bit of creative accounting going on.

    Zinger, The figure I quoted for Mayor of £138,613 was given to me by Wrexham.com from a Freedom of Information request that they put in to WCBC.A smile and being pleasant does not cost anything, I agree, so why do we have to pay for the mayor to smile?

    The cost of running the Mayor is quoted as £138,613.If that what it costs for a feel good factor,is there no cheaper feel good factor ideas?

    I’m also confused by this line:
    “Evidence suggests that households who do not shop or pay bills on line can lose on average £560 per year. With Wrexham’s total households amounting to 57,029* at the last Census in 2011 that means Wrexham residents are missing out on just under £32 million extra into the County Borough.

    I am also confused by the £32 million Wrexham residents are missing out on.57,029 households @ £560 per year = £32 million.The Councils evidence is surmising that nobody in Wrexham buys anything on line.Another set of figures that do not add up as usual coming from WCBC.

    Two Cllrs that have brought this to the Scrutiny meeting are from Cefn and Llangollen,whilst the two Cllrs on the Executive Board are from Johnstown and Penycae all hotbeds of support for the non closure.This must have a bearing on how they vote.Cllr Mark Pritchard from Esclusham another hotbed of support, had the bottle to support closure.This is about real money not about retaining their seat at the next election.

    Zinger, I think you are wearing blinkers.
