But our council will still waste money, like throwing snow to the sun.

The overspend on the North Devon recycling centre at Roundswell, which they say will be about �1 million, will probably, if the truth be known, more like �2 million.

Surely someone in the Civic Centre could work out where the money has been spent. You would not need to be the sharpest knife in the drawer to do that. Back to the budget. I suggest that Councillor Des Brailey wanders through the Civic Centre and looks in each department and sorts out the deadwood. That would save a few bob.
