Hot topics at area committee meeting

MEMBERS of the public are being invited along to the area committee meeting on Tuesday night, with two important items on the agenda.

There will be further discussion on plans to pool Common Good revenues into one single investment strategy. And there will also be a presentation from Scottish Borders Council officials about the alternative weekly collections, introduced last year.

Committee chairman, Councillor Jock Houston said: “If you have a point of view please come along to put questions to the council’s officers after they have made their presentation.”

The meeting will take place in Room 205 in the Tower Mill at 6.30pm.
