Thank you for your coverage in the matter of library closure.
I have received several calls supporting my view but one from a council officer who said everyone is telling them what they shouldn’t do but no-one is making positive suggestions.
I am sure the community can suggest several options worth consideration.
Given the costs of redundancy involved in the closure of a library – while I believe retaining the building – would be to consider the council’s own expenses. Since the great reduction in petrol prices I can suggest reducing the mileage allowances paid to councillors and officers.
Perhaps other readers may have different opinions.
May I also add that though I was greatly honoured to be a named harbour commissioner for 12 years, I was never the chairman.
