YP Comment: Councils and lack of leadership

THERE is nothing wrong with Harrogate Council, or any other local authority, reviewing how they deliver services to the public – every well-run business looks to make efficiencies on an annual basis. What is less encouraging is the borough’s desire to spend £70,000 of public money on external consultants – who presumably don’t know the area, issues or priorities – to make intended savings of £880,000.
