New Lincs Logo: Good use of your money?
What's the best way to improve Lincolnshire's tarnished image?
After the scandals, poor performance and failures of the past couple of years, I would have thought that improving services would be top priority.
But Martin Hill's team had a bright idea. They decided the County Council need a flashy new logo.
A firm of consultants has been paid £40,000. And this is what they've come up with.
It will cost another £150,000 to change letter-heads, vehicle liveries and the like.
As usual with those who run our County Council, there was little or no consultation before the money was spent - not even with elected members.
I promise to pass on your comments to those who took the decision that this was the best way to spend YOUR money.
