Councillors to meet with Highways officers over gritting mayhem

Birkdale’s Councillor Simon Shaw, together with fellow Southport councillors, are meeting senior Council officers this Wednesday.  They plan to get answers from the Council as to why there has been such poor performance locally in clearing main roads and town centre pavements of snow and ice.

“The absolute priority throughout has been trying to get effective Council action on the ground,” explains Simon.  “The last thing we wanted to do was to divert key officers from doing their job in the run-up to Christmas by having a Town Hall meeting too soon.”

“That’s why we have delayed having this crucial meeting until the first day back after the bank holiday break.  We’ll be demanding explanations as to why things have clearly gone so badly wrong.  As the problems affect all parts of our town I have asked local Conservative councillors if they would like to attend as well as Lib Dems.  I am keen for all wards to be represented.  On a cross-party basis, we all want some urgent answers.”

Simon and his colleagues have a comprehensive list of questions they want answering on behalf of residents.  Please forward any issues you would like raised to Simon at simonshawsouthport@hotmail.com by 10.00am Wednesday.  Please include your name and address.

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.
