Is Ballymoney Council skint?

SIR - I was dismayed when reading in one of the National papers (Sunday World) this weekend that Ballymoney Borough Council is skint. If this is the case why are we not being told.

I was engrossed with the comments in last weeks Ballymoney and Moyle Times by Mr Walker from Kilraughts and I think it’s now time for answers. Are we skint? Where has the money been spent? By whom was it spent and how much?.

Surely as rate payers we are entitled to know. The article mentions the reserve funds held by the council being eroded away, is this true? And if so who authorised this to happen?

I know just how frustrated Mr Walker feels and that is why I have decided to stand in the local elections in May 2011 as part of the UUP.

We need accountability and at the very least the truth.

F or too long now the people of Ballymoney have been kept in the dark on how the DUP lead council spend our money.

At least its not long before the people of this great Borough of Ballymoney get a chance to show their distaste at the election box.

Kind Regards Steven Phillips, Ballymoney
