Find the cash

Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - STANDARD VIEW -

Sir – De­spite the coun­cil fi­nance chief an­nounc­ing that a fur­ther £80 mil­lion of sav­ings has to be found over the next five years, they were able to find £250,000 for an in­quiry into the DG One de­ba­cle and yet they can’t find £31,000 to fund the run­ning and main­te­nance costs of the elec­tronic bus timeta­bles at all the shel­ters through­out the re­gion.

It is of im­mense ben­e­fit to all bus users, es­pe­cially, el­derly, par­tially sighted and visi­tors to the re­gion.

At the same the bus shel­ters need to be thor­oughly cleaned too. The one at Burns Statue has had a roof pane miss­ing for at least six months. Colin Lind, Dum­fries
