Toilets panned unless Council spends a penny

Created on 24/11/2010 @ 14:03


Welshpool could be about to take over the running of its own public toilets and flower beds after Powys County Council indicated that their funding could be axed.
The council will have to slice millions off its budget, and is set to introduce cuts to public services across the county. And public toilets are one convenience that could be flushed down the pan, unless Welshpool Town Council decides to spend a penny or two.
Initial discussions have been held between town and county council over the management of the town’s public toilets, as well as the flower beds which could also have their county council funding uprooted.
“The town council has on its agenda a recommendation to look to take over the toilets and flower beds in principle, in what form is yet to be decided,” confirmed Town Clerk Robert Robinson.
Three years ago, the town council successfully took over the running of the Tourist Information Centre and is believed to be readying itself to possibly take over more services to ease the burden of the potential cuts in public services that now look inevitable.
