Stop wast­ing money

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion -

“WE have just re­ceived our eight-page Coun­cil News let­ter (June-July edi­tion). It asks whether the fu­ture coun­cil will have di­vi­sions or not. It states, and I quote: “Now we are ask­ing the com­mu­nity via a 500 per­son phone poll sam­ple, if res­i­dents favour re­tain­ing di­vi­sions or do­ing away with them.” We are then told that “the re­sults of that sur­vey will as­sist coun­cil to for­mu­late a view that could be put to the Elec­toral Com­mis­sion should coun­cil seek to change the ex­ist­ing di­vi­sional ar­range­ments”. We un­der­stand that your sug­gested “500 per­son sur­vey” is why we now have di­vi­sions. Didn’t work last time – and won’t work this time, un­less you are try­ing to jus­tify the fact that you “have con­sulted the com­mu­nity”. Please, coun­cil – stop wast­ing our money and do the job prop­erly. The fu­ture make-up of our coun­cil, what­ever it is, should be based on more than a “500 per­son sur­vey”. “
