Water foun­tains to curb bot­tles?

The Scarborough Evening News - - WELCOME TO YOUR NEWS -

The Labour Group says it had planned to ta­ble a cre­ative amend­ment to the mo­tion re­quir­ing Scar­bor­ough Bor­ough Coun­cil, in part­ner­ship with York­shire Water and the county coun­cil, to work to­wards in­stalling pub­li­cally avail­able, freeto-use, water foun­tains. But the de­bate was closed down by the mayor be­fore this amend­ment was tabled. Steve Sid­dons, leader of the Labour Group said: “It is un­for­tu­nate that the mayor didn’t al­low full de­bate of this im­por­tant is­sue, which is high on the na­tional agenda, and lost the coun­cil the op­por­tu­nity to make a sig­nif­i­cant change.”

He says the group will con­tinue to press for changes which im­prove the en­vi­ron­ment.
