Shake-up call at Town Hall

RE: CUTBACKS on Scarborough Council.

It’s high time there was a large shake-up at Scarborough Town Hall.

I used to work for the council for many years and I was shocked at the number of overstaffed and overpaid administrators who wouldn’t have lasted more than a few weeks in any private company.

The worst department by far has always been Leisure and Amenities. It would save the taxpayers millions of pounds if the whole department was put out to tender.

Private contractors can do all the work far more efficiently without costing the taxpayers a penny.

Look at the vast improvements to the miniature railway since it was put out to tender.

It’s time the Council’s gravy train hit the buffers!
