ok with all the spending cuts for Rbc and the closure of courts etc and the many opionions that people have , what do we Actually think we should have and the Way things should be run.
Bearing in mind that those stupid bird sculptres in Bacup and the other Humongously financed "works of art" (sorry but thats laughable) were funded by i think the arts council and so not specific to any borough related costs (except for the upkeep, which is laughable again in the sake of health and safety cos no bugger has seen em in full since about 4 years ago) that these works of "art" are not included in the budget except fo rthe possible maintainance of the surrounding area. (cant u tell i hate them birds)

Im staying narrow minded in what i put here for an opener, im not mentioning overpaid underacheiving councillors, im not mentioning a town hall that isn't under one roof, im not mentioning exorbitant rates for surveys that could have cost next to bugger all with just a days looking at a decent website in rossendale with a majority of thoughts that could actuially make a hell of a difference.

Save us money! Bring our Council tax down? Show the richard cranium councillors whether they do know what there local constituants want?

Well, RoL users have a chance, lets see if the councillors dare implement whats suggested.
Big open line , what would you want?

Re: Sounding Board

You can have your say by visiting the council's website. I'd like to web address here but haven't made enough posts as yet.

To get to site type the three w's followed by rossendale dot gov dot uk forward slash makeeverypennycount

or in Google trype in: rossendale make every penny count

The more responses we get the better.

council tax as far as RBC goes hasnt gone up, they got told they wernt allowed to put it up. you can thank the emergency services (which are being cut around here) and LCC for the increase this year.

as for what i want, id like us to pull out of EVERY deal with LCC and other councils and do it all in rossendale. for example, why do we pay rochdale council money, and why do we pay burnley council money for cctv ?? (its in octobers financial figures btw)

id like rbc to employ managers that actualy manage and do there job rather than wait for other people to make a choice, as well as have the balls to tell councilors to go away rather than bend over backwards in keeping them happy.

one the emergency services. how about they get run by the valley for the valley. keep the money in the valley and have all services they need provided by local companys.

and on that note. stop using capita, labours old favorite gov contractor who over charges and delivers late.

i could go on but others with more exprience should have a chance before i go off on a rant

Re: Sounding Board

What is the answer? We make everything efficient and put another few million out of work or we create jobs for which we have to pay, it's a nightmare situation, perhaps we could share the work out or are there just to many people
