THE use of the spy camera (The Press, June 4) is sneaky, back-door revenue raising by City of York Council.

What also concerns me is that Freedom of Information requests have to be implemented to get the data on what is going on. Why the secrecy, unless they have something to hide?

They are never slow at publishing any actions that they perceive put themselves in a good light.
