Council cuts are rarely welcomed but Bexley’s proposal to send the Local
Studies and Archives service to Bromley has gone down like a lead balloon with
various local history societies. It merited a mention on
Arthur Pewty’s blog too. There is even
account for the protest movement.
Some of Bexley council’s budget proposals may be seen in the table below. There are 44 of them in total.
The figures refer to the thousands of pounds allegedly saved in each of the next four years. If senior staff were paid the amount that the government has suggested from time to time, three or four of the cuts shown wouldn’t be necessary. If Don Massey and his wife weren’t such a drain on the taxpayer, £41k. would be saved at a stroke.
