Yip! The Tories at the Town Hall have once more been coming up with some super ideas in order to deal with their impending financial deficit, caused either by their own vanity projects or cuts made by their Tory colleagues in central government.
This time they’re proposing that if your bin gets stolen, then to get a replacement you’ll need to pay them £25 for a new bins and £15 for a new food caddy and set of liners.
At this point ………
A) You might be wondering where your Council Tax actually goes and what it gets spent on?
B) You might also remember that these are the same Tories who came up with the idea of charging you to have your brown bin collected a.k.a the Brown Bin Tax.
The bods at the Town Hall are justifying this proposal by talking about “….the number of lost or stolen bins in the city.”
They claim, last year the council spent £144k replacing these.
They also claim that they predict that this cost will rise to £170k in 2018/19.
But give no reason as to why? Perhaps they know of some of some expert bin thieves moving up from London in the near future?
As always, I’d love to know what you think? Please post a comment below!
