Nairnshire roads budget slashed by 1/6th

This evening Provost Liz MacDonald told a meeting of Nairn Suburban Community Council that she had today received figures that indicated that the Nairnshire roads budget had been reduced by £65,000. The entire budget for the Highland Council area had been reduced by £621,000 but Nairn had had to absorb a massive cut that amounted to 1/6 of the previous year's budget: down from £368,000 to £303,000. Liz is now on the committee that deals with roads, having been ousted from her previous positions in the take-over by the new administration. The Provost told concerned community councillors and members of the public that she intended to follow up the issue.
