Transparency Recognised

Posted by davidburbage on September 13, 2009

I was telephoned by some chap at the Sunday Times last week, and I wasn’t around. Someone in my office took a message to say that he was interested in the spending transparency that the Borough had implemented.

Trying to phone him back, I got no answer twice. I wanted to point out that we had in fact published not only the suppliers payments but also scanned all of the councillor claims as well!

So today in the Sunday Times, the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead was the leading council quoted!

Awesome stuff – lower down in the printed version they showed people using the purple boxes and talking about recycling rewards; pity, the rewards only work with the blue bins and the green waste wheelie bins.

I’ll take it though.
