Council pledge 'not kept'

WHAT was Cullompton Town Council thinking when it agreed to increase its council tax precept by £53,000. Repairs to the town hall, staff wages and town maintenance were quoted as reasons.

The new cemetery extension has cost more to develop than first anticipated. Why should we be held accountable for their mistakes?

Also council payroll is to increase by 7.5 per cent to cover extra staff needed to maintain our town, which isn't necessarily maintained adequately now.

Councillors need to turn their promises into reality.

The last election saw the 'new' council promise so much but they haven't delivered on anything.

Is this a case of getting your foot in the door and then doing and saying what you want?

At the end of the day, all that has changed is a few new bins and some new town history signs, is that what they call improvements?

After all, Promises are nothing unless they are kept.
