Chair, Clr Michael Watson, said: “Issues such as winter road maintenance are often raised with us as councillors and we do need feedback from the residents of the areas we serve. I would encourage anyone to come along to listen to the information provided and to engage in the discussions.”

The meeting is at the Carlile Institute from 7 - 9pm.
