Disgusting in such crime ridden days as now. What a poor service we now get for our council tax money. With ever more homes being built and paying in, we should have better services NOT worse ones.
Someone is spending it very badly imo.
As if years ago far less houses kept libraries, toilets, more police, dustmen every week, free tip access, verges all cut every week, footpaths cut and neat, etc etc, just WHAT has changed NOW to make ever higher council tax necessary, yet with countless more homes here, AND an ever worsening service?
Can anyone HONESTLY answer???

Agree with what your saying regarding all the other services but the Police Station in Newport is closing just for 2 days for MAINTENANCE work to be completed. Probably installing a higher front desk with protective shielding around it!!!!!
