Call to spend money on potholes not signs
A ROW over the cost of county council signs erupted at a Tewkesbury Town Council meeting.
County councillor Mike Sztymiak (I, Tewkesbury) asked members of the town council to complain to the Conservative-run Shire Hall on the issue.
He said he "deplored" it spending £1,250 on 50 signs advertising its Highways Local work.
Mr Sztymiak said the money would have been better spent on fixing pot holes.

Some town councillors agreed with him but others felt he was raising the point for political reasons.
Confusion over the result of a vote on the issue means it will come back to the town council's April meeting.
