Staffordshire pours money into long term highway maintenance budget


This is an example of an authority taking a common sense decision before the roads fall completely to pieces whereas some authorities bury their collective heads in the sand. What we have to remember here though, is that if councillors spend money on roads etc., they might not get elected. Have you not noticed the number of Town Halls up and down the country that are being sold off to keep the 'Council Tax' down? They cost money to run and they are a pain in the neck for elected members, so let's get rid of them they say. That's okay until all the 'family jewels' have gone, then the tax has to rise.
