Andy Jackson BS: Council services cuts UK (33) RE: BS: Council services cuts UK 03 Mar 11

Although I heartily agree with pruning all those unnecessary job titles, this is almost a side issue. What is important is maintaining the services that we as rate payers should expect to be provided as part of our contract with the Council.
Economies of staffing are part of the way forward but all round efficiency and a fairer share of the BIG pot of OUR money would go further to solve the problems we seem to face.
I am continually appalled by the grant system where local councils have to use the money available to them within a certain time or they will "lose" it. Also the claim that it is from a different budget and is not available to, for example, keep the toilets open. Who gave them the money? WE BLOODY DID!! It's our money, we should have a say in how it is spent, it seems we can no longer trust our elected officials to make the right decisions.
(OOh I feel better now!)
