Guernsey parking fees 'could help debt issue'

Post by GD on Mon 04 Apr 2011, 5:12 pm

A Guernsey deputy has urged his colleagues to introduce paid parking in order to sort out the island's finances.
It was last debated in 2009 when it was thrown out in favour of more fuel tax.
Deputy Barry Brehaut said it would help manage the traffic and provide another source of income for the States.
The call comes after the rejection of plans put forward by the Public Services Department to find almost 2m from its budget.
Deputy Brehaut said: "We have a structural deficit... why is it with this real problem we have we are we so reluctant to deal with this one thing?
"We need to get over this hurdle of paid parking on the island of paid parking, there are many ways to do this." (from BBC)

Because the States gave us the debt does it mean we have to pay for their bad governing? Because I could point to a few 'nice little savers' like Social Security sending out three letter in one day - all saying the same and of course under separate cover with three sets of paper/envelopes/administration/stamps!!! It is far from the only example!!!

Is he the same bloke who was saying recently that the VAT trading loophole should be closed ? If so he's a blooming liability to you all.

Yes same letter from the department cost money .in postage as well and having to print and put them in envelopes
they need to look at cost saving across the board
lower the heating in these paces it is like an over and turn off the lights in the night
the post office by me is lit up like a christmas tree at times and sure have lights on all the time
Saving can be made internally first .
as for parking fees as i dont drive and see so many dumped cars lying around the island ,perhaps you should pay a cost by how many you have .
