Come on guys get with the game and save some money
Trafford Council is spending nearly Â£30m rebuilding its town hall â€“ while facing Â£60m in cuts. The council is to revamp the modern extension on its Stretford headquarters and repair the 1930s part of the building in a Â£28.9m overhaul. Bosses say it will save millions in the long term by halting a spiralling repair bill. But opposition councillors slammed the move. The council, which expects to slash Â£60m under next weekâ€™s spending review, will fund the project mainly through borrowing. It will take out a Â£26m loan, finding the rest from its reserves.
