Further probe bears fruit!

Don Buxton shares this latest exchange of correspondence:

Dear chiefexecutive@rotherham.gov.uk

Thank you for the information lately supplied by your subordinate employee in response to my earlier request to you to supply further statutory information relating to a motor vehicle parked on the paved pedestrian area outside the Town Hall.

I, along with many other active and empowered Rotherham citizens, are now perusing, checking and scrutinising the details provided and may contact you again should we require you to provide further information or clarification.

It is with the utmost irony but significant delight that I note that the RMBC vehicle in question will no longer be parked on the pedestrian paved area outside the Town Hall when not in use.*

I am pleased to recognise and acknowledge the change of attitude towards enquiries from citizens which has undoubtedly occurred at a strategic level within RMBC in order for this significant volte-face to occur.

Yours Sincerely,

Donald H. Buxton

Mr Buxton, I write in response to your latest email. I attach the mileage sheet as requested. I can also confirm that the vehicle is driven by one of our town hall attendants

I can also confirm that in future the vehicle will not be parked on the pavement outside the Town Hall when not in use.

I trust that answers your questions.

Regards

Karl Battersby
Strategic Director

  1. Karl Battersby’s response, through gritted teeth I imagine.
    “I can also confirm that in future the vehicle will not be parked on the pavement outside the Town Hall when not in use.”
    Haven’t stopped chuckling since I first saw this, hope readers are similarly affected.
