In Highland we are still to find out if we are to get a Council Tax rise and what will be the cuts that will hit civic life. In Moray there seems to be a wealth of press interest in what is going on with details leaking out. They could be in for an 18% rise in Council Tax according to some media reports and now a story about the green bins only being collected once every 3 or 4 weeks:
"CUTTING the frequency of green bin collections to once every three or four weeks is being considered.
Stephen Cooper, Moray Council's head of direct services, told a meeting of Elgin Community Council that a reduction in how often residual waste would be lifted was being examined as part of cost-saving measures."
Lets hope they are putting money aside for increased fly tipping. You have to wonder what will happen if there are further cuts in a few years.... No bin pick ups? You have to take all your rubbish to the tip yourself.....
At least we will still have nuclear weapons to protect us even if our bins stink like ****
So Moray lose 1 million bucks if they raise the council tax. Lucky residents who'll absorb that and pay 18% extra
Aye - worry, worry, worry ...............
The Tories and Independents run the Moray Council.
And err - who now runs our Council?
Well after 2 weeks my green bin is full and that is with a full blue bin of recyclables.
Why bother, you can't please all of the people all of the time.
Don't put the Council Tax up, just make the cuts, if there is no money then there is no money.
We will just have to stop getting any services,
And go back to the way life was in the 50's and 60's, we lived through it.
still bitter and twisted....ha-ha, oh he is, I paid over 3k last year on Social Services and I certainly did not pay that on Nuclear weapons.....
