Find the cash
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
