So 60% of the people that voted in this poll (149 people voted), think that paying a Councilor the basic 12,000 per year, are not worth it.

what happened to do for there community and Not for the financial side of it, most of them work; perhaps they should fetch a "pay as you work" system make them earn it perhaps they would then gain more respect & loyality from people.

Not bad considering the amount of work they do. Should be less in my opinion.

I thinking they are not worth it because i was crossing the road the one day and i happened to see a council car coming down the road, when the van had passed me i had realised that the man in it was on the mobile phone whilst he was driving at a quite busy road!

i live in the ashvale area and as far as i am concerned the councilors for my ward don't deserve anything because nothing seems to be being done about all the drugs in bevans ave all the speeding cars that go up north ave or the gangs of kids that roam the streets creating havoc.I think its about time that the cars were left at home and they started to walk around the area day and night and see exactly what''s going on.

Councillors should receive expenses only - this should not be treated as a full-time job. If there was no remuneration there would be a better class of councillor.Unfortunately hot air merchants end up with the task and pay lip-service to the community as a whole whilst being paid for it. Time for change - they serve no purpose and place a burden on the finances of the borough.
