Dirty city needs someone who can manage money
JUST what do our council think they are doing, paying £32 million to revamp the Council House when all it needed was double glazing to update it?
Then you read in the paper that they are re-employing people they made redundant last year. I know someone who has worked for the council since he left school – he wants to leave and they won't let him.
Now they are now thinking of charging £40 to empty the brown bins.
If you want to get the rates down, fill the empty shops, fill the vacant houses and get rates in, don't introduce more and more cuts or increase council tax.
I think Derby needs someone who knows how to manage money and put the money where it should be, not in a building very few people will visit.
I used to be proud to say I live in Derby, but not any more. It's just a dirty, empty city.
