Just called into my local library to see if they would get me a book only to be informed by a very pi***d off librarian that due to the WCBC overspend her budget has been cut so, no new books for us. Waste £1000’s on silly projects like the forthcoming brain dead 20mph blanket speed limits amongst others then leave us to put up with the fall out. Labour/Plaid need sorting out as they are running riot and blanket 20mph speed limits are not the end, next will be the national speed limit getting pegged back to 50mph. 50’s to 40. Wales wide LTN’s and LEZ’s anyone.
I have news for you IHMO – the Council ( which deals with libraries)is run by Independents and Tories and not Labour. Plaid too are in opposition except when they back the ‘ hare brain idea ‘ to spend on a judicial review so we can give developers a continued field day by having no overall plan !
The danger is a short term cut generated a longer term cost – look at the cleaning of drains – cut back on this and the next heavy rain is floods everywhere the cost more to sort than the drain savings in the first place.
Why do they still have Clywedog, Rhosnessni Maelor, St Josephs, Grango, Ruabon and Darland when they could get rid of two schools due to the number of spare spaces across Secondary Schools.
The Council do not mange Section 106 funding from developers often never collecting the funds or just leaving in their accounts so it is not used for intended purpose.
“Within our library services, the decision not to purchase any more books during this financial year outside of our existing commitments has reluctantly been made. This should save us approximately £19k.”
I was kidding initially but there are a lot of second hand on-line stores that you could try including Oxfam. Saving £19k could save a librarian’s job.
PS The 20mph rubbish won’t impact WCBC services with its cost of £32.3m, mostly for 30,000 replacement signs, 5,000 posts and new road markings.
What book did you want btw? Lets see if any readers here can help.
