Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang’s 12 coun­cil­lors have been placed into com­mit­tees where vi­tal coun­cil de­ci­sions will be made.

The area is best rep­re­sented in the plan­ning com­mit­tee, which makes de­ci­sions on ma­jor de­vel­op­ments across the two towns.

Alis­tair Ful­ton had al­ready been con­firmed as chair, but Carol Nu­gent, Katy Loudon, Ann Le Blond, Mar­garet Cowie, Ger­ard Killen, Wal­ter Bro­gan and John Bradley will all have a say as mem­bers of the com­mit­tee.

The area is also well rep­re­sented in ed­u­ca­tion, with Katy Loudon act­ing as chair.

Also there will be Mar­garet Cowie, Ger­ard Killen, Ann Le Blond, Alis­tair Ful­ton and Carol Nu­gent, although Coun­cil­lor Killen is set to stand down.

The ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee, the most im­por­tant of all coun­cil meet­ings apart from the fill coun­cil, will have six rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang.

Alis­tair Ful­ton, Katy Loudon, Robert Brown, Ann Le Blond, Ger­ard Killen and Wal­ter Bro­gan will sit on the ex­ec­u­tive.

The other com­mit­tees will in­clude Com­mu­nity and En­ter­prise: Mar­garet Walker, Jared Wark, Ann Le Blond.

Fi­nance: Wal­ter Bro­gan, Jared Wark, Robert Brown, Ja­nine Ca­likes.

Hous­ing: Ja­nine Ca­likes, Alis­tair Ful­ton, Robert Brown, Carol Nu­gent.

Li­cens­ing: Robert Brown, John Bradley, Katy Loudon.

All 12 will be mem­bers of the Cam­bus­lang and Ruther­glen area com­mit­tee.

Katy Loudon, Alis­tair Ful­ton and Ann Le Blond will all serve on five com­mit­tees, more than any of the other coun­cil­lors.

Com­mit­tee meet­ings started up again this week. An ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee will be held next Wed­nes­day be­fore the coun­cil stops for the sum­mer re­cess.

A 34-year-old man will spend 108 days be­hind bars for us­ing his body weight to pin a po­lice of­fi­cer against the door of a ve­hi­cle and re­peat­edly at­tempt­ing to strike her with his head.

Don­ald Hud­son from To­ry­glen, com­mit­ted the of­fence while in the back of po­lice ve­hi­cle on Au­gust 6, 2016 on Cam­bus­lang Road.

The Ard­na­hoe Av­enue res­i­dent also as­saulted a male who was driv­ing the ve­hi­cle by kick­ing him on the body trav­el­ling on Cam­bus­lang Road.

He was fur­ther found guilty of re­peat­edly kick­ing a car win­dow in an at­tempt to smash it and strug­gled vi­o­lently with con­sta­bles.

Hud­son, who was on bail at the time of the in­ci­dent, was sen­tenced to 108 days im­pris­on­ment at Glas­gow Sher­iff Court. Hard work Ann Le Blond will sit on five com­mit­tees
