Me thinks that there are Elections coming up, next we will have the unveiling of the four and a half million pound pond fiasco,while we have food banks for people and our Hospice desperate for money,but good old Dotty will give us all a smile at every oppurtunity, lets hope this is the last year we see her in office.

Excellent work, the more improvements the better. I just wish the work would finish sooner. I am glad to see my council tax is being used to improve the town. Pond will look amazing in the summer. Cannot wait to sit there with a cold drink.

I guess that you can feel proud that everytime you've considered buying a cold drink, you've always instead donated the money to the hospice. Not all of us have such an heroic moral compass.

I do donate to Watford Hospice, but I think you are missing the point that 4.3 million pounds could have been spent better,to help the people of Watford.

I may be wrong, but as far as I'm aware the money *had* to be spent on regeneration of the town centre. This being the case, the improvements really are fantastic. A nicer town will hopefully encourage higher footfall, improving the local economy.

Talking of shoody workmanship and bad ideas, has anyone noticed that expensive wallcovering for the town hall subway has been peeling for a while now and workmen are now lining the wall with new boards and abandoning that wallcovering altogether?

So much for value for money with the existing Mayor.

That really was shoddy workmanship and bad ideas brought to you by Watford LibDem council. I don't seem to remember Dotty mentioning that dotty expensive wsteful idea when she was boasting about how low council taxes are using false figures.

They did this expensive covering and straight away it had to be done again. Apparently at no extra cost. It was just not a practical solution and many people could see that at the time but no, the council knew best.

We were told it was worth the money and would last a very long time. How long ago was that? A year? How long do tiles last? How long does a coat of paint last? Longer than this expensive covering, that's for sure.

Now it is being abandoned and covered over.

How else could you describe it but a bad idea and a complete waste of money? Our money, our tax money.

It's important people know how our taxes are used and if they are used wisely. Surely you agree with that?

Not answered the question. Who is responsible for it being damaged? If you are blaming the mayor then I suggest you report her to the police for them to investigate.
