As a Musselburgh resident I am delighted that East Lothian Council have amended their charges.
However, once more Councillor Currie shouts his mouth off without telling the full story.
Councillor Currie was part of the last administration who agreed to £90,000 of Musselburgh Common Good monies being spent on consultancy fees to determine hire charges for the newly refurbished Brunton Hall. The last administration’s Musselburgh councillors were full of praise and wanted all the glory as they had completed the refurbishment.
What short memories they have. This administration ordered the rethink, nothing to do with a SNP motion as they would have you believe. Council officials have done the work and a lot of money could have been saved.
