Public Questions

The meeting was adjourned to invite comments and questions from the public.

 

Beverley Dooley asked the following questions:

The Council seems to have a lot of high capital spend for example the Pavilion, if the lottery bid is unsuccessful how will it be paid for. Also the Town Council is taking on responsibility for winter gritting and the lighting on the Middlewood Way, how will that be funded. Plus, there is the Community Enforcement officer and the potential asset transfer of the Visitor Information centre, how will this be paid for?

The Mayor replied saying that as it was a very detailed set of questions the clerk would provide a written report.

 

The meeting was then reconvened.
