Resolve Wirral's issues and save our money
12:08pm Tuesday 2nd October 2012 in Letters
WITH other residents, I have recently received a consultation survey from Wirral Borough Council about council tax.
The council wants our views about what is important to us in terms of spending. This is welcome, but asked at a time when several senior officers have been suspended from Wirral Council for months.
In at least some of these cases, the council has an obligation to resolve the issues within a defined time frame which was reached weeks ago.
While the questions remain unresolved - and for most of the officers any charges remain undefined – we council taxpayers are paying a lot of money to these officers to tend their gardens and, presumably, even more money to others to cover their work.
An immediate saving in council expenditure could be achieved if the 66 elected members were to pursue a prompt resolution.
