Anger at An­gus park­ing charges

The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - COMMENT -

Sir, – I was an­gered to read in The Courier of the An­gus Coun­cil plan to re-in­tro­duce car park­ing charges (“Res­i­dents likely to be hit with 3% tax hike”, Fe­bru­ary 13).

I strongly be­lieve this is a back­ward step and will pos­si­bly re­sult in more empty shops in our town’s high streets.

My sec­ond point is if we have to lose jobs then maybe a re­duc­tion in the amount of coun­cil­lors we have should be made part of that process.

Do we re­ally need the cur­rent num­ber to run our coun­cil? I think not. RA Fer­gu­son. 5 Fer­gu­son Av­enue, Brechin.
