Tonight's City Council meetings

After my Monday surgeries at the Mitchell Street Centre and Harris Academy, I attended tonight's City Council committees.   Amongst other matters :

* At the Leisure & Communities Committee, I asked a question about the restoration of headstones and memorials in the city's cemeteries.

* At Policy and Resources Committee, I queried the extent of contingency funding for the proposed new Olympia swimming and leisure facility and adjacent car park.

* At the same committee, I queried revenue costs and targeted savings in relation to the council's telephony infrastructure.

* ... and also queried the budgetary arrangements in relation to overspends in Education, Social Work and City Development.
