    Doesn’t seem right that some Chester shops / restaurants will get up to an £8,000 per year rate reduction and no similar promised reduction here in Wrexham.

    Someone on the Forums mentioned pension payments for Councillors, the end column of the allowances list shows those who pay towards a pension, assume figure shown is the Council contribution rather than Councillor. Someone will clairify if that is wrong .

    The figures are for the last financial year, the lastest available on the Council site.

    Another year with £1,000,000 overspend on bin collection , half of it blamed on the cost of aganecy staff. There is also a big increase in the number of recycling wagons, the cost isn’t mentioned in the above article. Plenty of potential saving with better management, without cuts to bin collections and charging for green bins!

    Why can’t Councillors pay at the machines just like any member of the public? No need for any special meetings or reports , just treat them like everyone else.

    Looks like the Council have set up a not for profit Lettings Agency. The initial set up costs were to be in the region of £150,000. Is the Agency covering all its costs going forward or should Wrexham follow Flintshire and abandon the project ? The Council should concentrate on spending on its core essential services in times of severe cuts.

    Anyone able to answer the question or is it Wrexham’s best kept secret ? Surely Councillors must know what’s going on !

    So the financial settlement has had no impact on this. We are being asked to pay £30 per year for a green bin to cover the cost of the error of judgement made by the Executive Board , Councillors and Officers. Perhaps they should finance the shortfall. Councillors Allowances amount to over £1,000,000 per year , if they all gave 10% , £100,000 covered and reducing the Executive Board by two members would generate another £70,000. I don’t for one minute think this will happen!

    Refuse collection. A few questions for the Council/Councillors to answer.

    Why hasn’t the option to collect recycling fortnightly been included as an option ? Fortnightly recycling is particularly suited to those people who have the recycling trollies that hold more. Does collection of recycling cost the same , more or less than bin collection ? Are the rounds the same size? Do the council earn any income from the green waste collection and recycling ?

    What percentage of households do the council think will NOT pay £30 per year for a green bin ? How will this impact on how the green bin rounds will be organised? What impact does the council believe implementing both or either three week black bin collections and charging for emptying the green bins will have on fly tipping ? How much do the council pay annually now to clear fly tipping ?

    Have the Council considered some people with small gardens might be tempted to put garden refuse into the black bin ?

    If the green bin collection is restricted to monthly collection for December, January and February , what will happen to those employees? Will that decision lead to more agency /temporary staff being employed rather than full time employment ?

    Despite the resurfacing work on the Powell Road /Chester Road roundabout the water still doesn’t drain away on either side of the road. Yesterday it was almost totally flooded across both carriage ways. Have the drains been properly cleaned ?
