Wirral Council waste is neverending

First published in Letters

IS there anyone else who is getting rather infuriated by the present administration in Wirral Borough Council or is it just me?

The waste is never ending.

To name but one example of excessive expenditure, we have had the two wonderfully extravagant fire staircases fitted at the town hall; perhaps those in charge should organise outings to view the staircases to recoup some of the cost, to include afternoon tea and a trip in the executive lift?

We have had in the last week local council elections.

I ask, was there any real need to have a 32- page glossy brochure for all those attending the count, several to take home, for all the family to make good bedtime reading and also sent out to all candidates and agents across Wirral? At what cost?

While those at the town hall are enjoying spending our money on these niceties, the rest of us are having to put up with the Lyndale School threatened, neverending pot-holes, miserable roundabouts with no flowers, uncut grass and streets which are rarely swept, etc.

This present administration couldn't do a worse job if it tried.

Good letter. Spot on.

It is clear that the people who run Wirral Council are talking the talk but not walking it.

The CEO and the so called Super Directors are much heralded but on the face of it don't really bring much to the table.

It seems that Wirral just has a strategy of hiding behind a plethora of dubious public consultations, which seems to be the growth department within the Council just now.

All I believe the spending in the Town Hall is distasteful given the previous and proposed cutbacks.

When Wilkie left under a cloud the Council should have gone all out to try to find a young up and coming person with the strong will and the dynamism to take on the senior management team and drive Wirral forwards. Instead it took on a safe pair of hands on a short term contract and quickly extended it before anyone knew it.

If I was the Leader of Wirral I would give Burgess and most of the old senior management team their collective marching orders and start moving the Council forward at the same time trying to bring back the integrity and honesty that almost seems to be lost just now.
