I attended a meeting this morning of the Reputation and Performance Portfolio Advisory Committee.
On the one hand the Council tells everybody that will listen that there are massive savings to be made and the sooner they are made the less severe they will be. However, if true, its process of dealing with that challenge is incredibly ponderous and will cost Cornwall dear.
So far members have had the opportunity of participating in one of nine pre meetings on the Council's Strategy. Then we all came in to hear the results of all that. Now we are having ten meetings to give us the opportunity of asking for more information on different aspects of the budget for different service areas and so it goes on......
I wonder whether the Council's reputation will be enhanced by this process.
