Following my weekly surgeries this afternoon at the Mitchell Street Centre and at Harris Academy, I attended tonight's City Council meeting and various committees at which :
* At the City Council meeting, I praised the work of the Dundee Youth Council that has hit the ground running in representing young people across Dundee.
* At the Policy and Resources Committee, I sought assurances that the overspends in Social Work and City Development would result in a review of budget provision in 2012-13.
* At the same committee, I also sought assurances that the planned rebuilding project at Harris Academy would give local contractors a real opportunity to bid for the contracting and sub-contracting work.
