Council’s in credit
GIVE credit where credit’s due, Selby District Council deserves all the plaudits going at the moment.
Not only does Selby have a listening Conservative MP in Nigel Adams, it also has a listening Conservative-run council led by Coun Mark Crane.
Not only have they managed to get a few quid in the tank, they have passed their thrift on to many of their cash-strapped residents (me included) by not raising council tax for the third year running. It would be interesting to know how many councils in the country can boast that; certainly not our near neighbours, City of York Council. So hats off lads and lasses, three cheers for SDC. Soon-to-retire chief executive Martin Connor can be proud of the legacy he will leave behind.
