Start the savings at the top of our Cambs councils
WHY is it that, when there are any savings to be made with councils, the savings always seem to start at the bottom – ie street cleaning, IT, CCTV etc.
No mention is ever made of savings at the top.

It is without doubt that we are going through difficult financial times.

I, along with most Council Tax payers, have not had a pay increase in some considerable time, in fact my income has decreased, but the council hierarchy seem to be inflation proof.
If there is to be any collective belt tightening to be done, let’s start it from here.
