Maghull Town Council’s controlling Labour Group slam Lib Dems fo

Maghull Town Council's controlling Labour Group said the budget summary they announced would allow them to continue to make improvements to the town - despite the best attempts of the Lib Dems to scupper the plans.

 

Labour Councillors announced plans to for a range of town improvements, including rolling out a park refurbishment programme, as well as a Maghull Town Council apprentice scheme.

 

But instead of backing the plans, the Lib Dems on the council proposed unannounced and uncosted changes to the proposals.

 

Finance Committee chairwoman, Labour's Cllr Sandra Williams said the Lib Dems had tried their best to halt the town council's plans.

 

Cllr Williams said: "Even for them, the Liberal Democrats were being quite ridiculous during our serious budget discussions.

 

"Without notice they suggested major alterations which had clearly not been properly costed and which would have jeopardised the work we are doing for Maghull.

 

"Our plans for the next year are ambitious and they will make sure that unlike our Liberal Democrat predecessors we are not wasting a single penny of Maghull Council tax payers' money.

 

"Not only are we pushing forward with a progressive plans for town improvements, but we are having to deal with the costly legacy of the Lib Dems' town hall roof refurbishment."

 

Cllr Williams said the Liberal Democrats were doing nothing more than playing politics with Maghull Council Tax payers' money.

 

Cllr Williams said: "The Lib Dems had more than 15 years in control of Maghull Town Council. During that time they could have made the changes they are suggesting now. But they never did.

 

"We didn't see them cutting the precept when they were in control.

 

"So their uncosted, untested proposals are nothing more than a political stunt which is designed to scupper our ambitious plans for the council and the town.

 

"We aren't going to get involved in their game playing. Instead we will continue to make the savings that are needed in Maghull Town Council and introduce the initiatives which will have positive effects on the lives of the people of Maghull."
