Oldham Council spend £5,675 of taxpayers money on an animation telling them of the need to reduce Council spending.

It would appear that Oldham Council have employed a polling firm for a phone survey on residents opinion of Oldham & has also spent £5,675 of taxpayers money on an animation telling residents that they need to save the Council money due to budget cuts. This puts into perspective Labour leader Jim McMahon’s comments yesterday about  the effects of devastating budget cuts on the Council when his spending priorities include such trivialities. We also note that there are enough Council funds for the Town Centre floral displays to be  tended to by a team on a daily basis yet the Council have stopped collecting their own grass cuttings when mowing their own ground around residential properties leaving the organic waste free to litter the area.
