NOW YOU SEE IT – NOW YOU DON’T.
With no notice, the ‘very useful and well used’ Pay By Phone service has been withdrawn suddenly, with no warning, by WBC.
We and many of our followers, wonder why? Will we be told? What is even more important, will councillors be told? And if they are, will only some be told behind closed doors?
Former copper, Councillor Kevin Deanus, Portfolio Holder for Operational Services, said it was
“in order to protect the interests of our customers and the interests of the council, we have taken the decision to stop providing the service, as the issues have not been resolved.”
What issues, we wonder…
Now customers will have to pay at the metre – and we know what that means don’t we..? Look back on the our post, Dick Turpin Rides Again and see for yourselves how much money was gained in 2012/13 from not giving change in the car park machines.
