Coun­cil­lors ac­cused of sleep­ing on the job

The Oban Times - - NEWS -

A NUM­BER of coun­cil­lors were ac­cused of fall­ing asleep dur­ing Thurs­day’s packed pub­lic hear­ing. One ob­jec­tor at the hear­ing, Bar­bara Mac­far­lane, told The

Oban Times: ‘I do not be­lieve in the va­lid­ity of the de­ci­sion, given that, dur­ing Maud Mar­shall’s pre­sen­ta­tion, three coun­cil­lors were fast asleep.’

An­other said: ‘It would help if they were awake. We pay these peo­ple to do this job.’

A third mem­ber of the pub­lic agreed: ‘It does not help when half of them are asleep. It shows the lack of cal­i­bre.’
