Crowborough Town Council-bankrupt but still spending.

Crowborough Town council have decided to press the red accounting button marked "financial disaster".

They are already considering borrowing £1000,000 to help pay for the new white elephant community facility.
Despite the madness of this idea they are thinking it might be a good idea to stump up the extra money to get the thing built which is likely to be another £600,000.

Notice there is no mention of any cutting back on the specification of the hall or reducing the spend to match the money available.Hey what do they care anyway they dont have to pay it back.It will come down to the good old taxpayers of Crowborough to pay an extra £15 a year for the next 50 years or so.If we are paying for it why cant we have a say in the building and running of this project.Well the answer is obvious isnt it-how would the dodgy back hand deals continue if there were "the wrong sort of people" on the commitee (code for not bent).I should point out that currently the Council has just £169000 cash to fund a project that is likely to cost
the wrong side of £3000,000.Can you imagine the reaction if you went to your Bank Manager and asked to borrow £3 mill to buy lets say a sunseeker boat even though you only have £160,000 to put down as deposit and to run your boat for the next 20 years.
I think the second word would be off followed by "close the door on the way out".

Its totally unbelievable that we have managed to get all the financial retards on the council at the same time.Mind you as we havnt even voted for most of them is it any surprise that people are appointed because of their golf handicap rather than their financial skills.

To add insult to injury the Town Council are looking for a new Town Clerk and are thinking of offering a "RELOCATION PACKAGE" to get the right person.Fuck me I am sure there is someone locally who could do the job without too much trouble.Perhaps they are having to look far and wide for the type of person who will turn a blind eye to all the councils dodgy deals whilst being able to write the cheques (no questions asked).

Sack the whole undemocratic corrupt lot of them and start afresh.I reckon the Town would run pretty well with a Town Council half the size and cost it is currently .
