At yesterday’s Economic Development and Asset Management Committee – the Tories tried to justify spending £437,000 on new broadcasting equipment. Conservative Keith Girling, claimed NCC’s live streams were “extremely popular.” At the time, 5 people were watching ‘live’ on YouTube.
We’re certain that residents would prefer Notts County Council to spend this money on the broken roads and pavements that they are responsible for.
Councillor Steve Carr said: “At a time when the cost of living is spiralling upwards, spending almost £500,000 on audio visual equipment shows just how much the Tories are out of touch. Many people I represent are having to choose between food and heating. This decision is just obscene.”
