Fewer Councillors

Reduce the number of Councillors from 32 to 16 only 6 have real power anyway as portfolio holders. 

Saving £468k including employers conttrabutions, that plus expenses should generate approx £500k.

Why the contribution is important

Too many are not fit for purpose, too old, lack imagination and have no real power. Personally I'd reduce the number of Councillors more but let's take one step at a time.

    I would agree with reducing the number of councillors. As long as they are voted in to represent constituents and there are debates on policy decisions we will still have a democracy. The Councillors are there to ensure the council staff run the council for the Borderers.
