Have Your Say: Look to past for savings
SWANSEA Council employs solicitors, accountants, highway engineers and surveyors so why do they outsource work that their employees are capable of?
This costs many thousands of pounds, that would be one saving.
City councillors earn good money, perhaps as a goodwill gesture, they give one year's allowances to save the council from cutting services.
When I was young, we in Swansea had councillors who gave their time freely, only if they lost work were they able to claim for loss of earnings.
I know you cannot go back in time, but I think we are in excess of councillors.
We could manage on half the numbers we have at present.
