Letters in the News and Crier 18/2/10

My comments on letters in this weeks News and Crier.

Take the offer of help over car parking - I agree with Nigel Appleton over this so long as any agreement doesn't mean cost to the Council taxpayer. Cllr Farrer is a County and District Councillor and is not a Town Councillor.

St Neots - 'Make sure you go before you come' - There are three letters in this section.

Ray Laman is right in that HDC could end up with few services and many employees. A bureaucratic utopia.

As for Ken Castell and his couple of pounds extra, the likelihood it would be a fiver extra each year. This is just the thin end of the wedge. As couple of pounds here and a tenner here for something else Council Tax will just get out of control. So I object to paying more for this service.

Tony makes some good points but misses the big £6 million deficit lurking behind these decisions. These cuts are being driven by this deficit and there are many more to come.
