Why doesn’t the council have any money for the Toft pier? They could easily take money out of their reserves as they do for other things.
They found £5.5 million for the Sumburgh Airport dispute, and another £4.5 million for the failed Norröna venture. And the headquarters across the road from Mareel, now apparently collapsing badly, cost over £7 million.
Instead of continuing to waste money the council should get Toft pier done. People have been wating on this for some time now.
They could easily take many people out of the infrastructure department and they would never be missed. What the council has to pay to keep them would easily pay for the Toft pier repairs.
This is by far the worst bunch of councillors we have ever had in Shetland. They don’t care about us who are living in the isles. They get everything paid while the public are having to pay more for less services. I would clear the lot out and start again with people who are willing to speak for the islanders.
The council is taking people up here and paying for them to stay in hotels while they complete architectural drawings for buildings. Have we no-one in the council department who can do drawings for these buildings, without having to take up people from Glasgow for instance?
