This afternoon, I had the pleasure of chairing the final planning meeting of the West End Christmas Fortnight Committee and I am pleased to report that all is looking good for Christmas Fortnight 2013! The Christmas Fortnight brochure will be launched at the weekend.
Thereafter, I held my two weekly ward surgeries at the Mitchell Street Centre and the West Park Centre - and then participated in tonight's City Council committee meetings at which:
* At the Environment Committee, I welcomed public open space environmental improvements across the city. There are a number in the West End including at Victoria Park and Hunter Street - and I particularly welcomed planned improvements at Polepark that I have campaigned to see upgraded.
* At the Policy & Resources Committee, I said that the council's revenue budget for car park income must be comprehensively reviewed given the failure to meet budgeted income. I also queried the centralisation of some areas of work.
