Yet another £42,000 to be spent on Almonry Project.

These are the facts. April 6 2019 to current time the council has spent £50,364 on this project. In December 2019 a further £573,000 was agreed. This week another £42,000. This time only 5 councillors voted to support the extra spend. Four voted against. So a total of £665,364. Public money. Your money.
