Four stories caught my eye in The Scarborough News (September 10).
Firstly, Scarborough Council may look at taking in refugees. Fine, but they can’t find properties for rent for those already living and waiting for a property in the borough today.
Secondly, on another page more cuts in services will be required by Scarborough Borough Council to save money. So if there are major cuts in services how do we, the council tax payer, get the services we pay for in the first place, or do we all get a refund?
Thirdly, I noticed all but a couple of hands went up at the council meeting to have another Tour-de Yorkshire bike ride come through the town at a cost of £140k to us council tax payers. I thought the borough council were strapped for cash?
Lastly, the Open Air Theatre is a loss making white elephant. The council shut down the Futurist because is was not making money, what are they going to do with the Open Air Theatre, keep propping it up? Not good.
