Council says ‘no’ to street sweeper

Town councillors at Tickhill have rejected a suggestion they should employ their own street sweeper.

A resident who complained about the problem of litter in the town suggested an increase in the parish precept would cover the cost of a handyman – but councillors believe it would have to go up 25 per cent to cover the wages, ‘which would not be acceptable in an age of austerity’.
