Letter: Does the council have something to hide?
Date published: 13 April 2018
Mecca Bingo, Smith Street, Rochdale
I was reading the story about the car parking being paid for four councillors on the Mecca Bingo car park.
It’s very odd that Rochdale Online has to keep going through Freedom of Information requests to find out about Rochdale Council. It makes you think Rochdale Council has got something to hide.
How many requests is that now?
If, like the rest of us, you pay council tax and business tax, we have the right to know.
After all, it is a democracy and it is our money they use.
Are they sure they know what democracy means and the right to know when it comes to council and business tax payers’ money?
This present council does not appear to.
The views expressed are those of the author of the letter and not those of Rochdale Online.
Do you have a story for us?
Let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
All contact will be treated in confidence.
