Wirral town hall staircase is tip of iceberg

I HAVE recently been made redundant from Wirral Council.

The staircase reported about in the Globe is just the tip of the iceberg.

The entire top floor was refurbished at a massive cost. The whole of the back offices ground floor have been refurbished, also at great cost.

The next phase is the first-floor, where the canteen is, which is also being refurbished along with a brand new service lift and the refurbishment of the old lift which will be out of service for months.

On top of this we have had the re-fit of the chief executive suite including new furniture.

The cost of the staircase is only a small part of the stupid amounts of money being spent.

I don't think putting up the car parking charges will pay for this major work.

Ex-council employee (and glad of it) by email.

Thank you for your comments. We need more WBC staff to be as open as you.
There is far too much of Officers and Councillors snuggling up together. A seed is dropped by someone with a personal interest, recommendations are made accordingly, no-one asks the pertinent questions and Cabinet blindly agrees. This is happening time after time. They care not about the Wirral and its residents, but only in feathering their own nests.

Ex council employee, I am amazed did you not sign a gagging order, naughty boy or girl.
Ugg you should see the book that is being written.

Umm, it looks like the annexes could be lined up for a capital receipt and any staff left disbursed accordingly. Those deemed important enough will move over to WTH and the rest farmed out elsewhere.

In the coming months I can see more and more people speaking out as the more redundancies bite. That book will be interesting....
