I am pleased that Mirfield Town Council has taken my advice by putting money aside to keep Mirfield’s public toilets open.
Let us hope this is a temporary arrangement. When the Tory Government cuts to Kirklees Council’s budget no longer apply, we know the Council will do their very best to restore many of the services removed under pressure from the government. Restoration by Kirklees will relieve the expense now falling solely on Mirfield Town Council by spreading the cost across the whole of Kirklees and by taking advantage of government grants to Kirklees.
Town Council’s receive no government grant but the action taken to keep the toilets open was justified because of their impending closure.
