Time to look at spending where it is needed
I HAVE now seen the newly refurbished clock in Coney Street, which took all of a few seconds, no pun intended.
Was £54,000 money well, spent? I think not especially when the council are predicting a massive overspend for this financial year.
Yes the clock does look like it should be there, but how can this amount of money be justified? I would much rather this had been invested into services the city needs.
I know many others will welcome the spending of £54,000 on one clock.
It took me seven weeks to get a new recycling bin which probably cost 54 pence, and again when I want something from the council I have to wait and be given excuses for their failures, but when it comes to spending £54,000 on a clock the cash is readily available.
We cannot take the clock back and demand our money back.
