Thank you, Madam Chairman. I rise to speak on Item J which is the petition for Council to replace an existing wood barbeque with an electric barbeque in a little area of my ward that we call Benbek Circuit. It’s just a small very little suburban area with less than 100 houses in it, it’s got a little wee park in the middle, it’s got this horrible old wooden barbeque. The residents have been raising with the previous councillor for some time to do something about it, so when I was doorknocking they said to me can we organise something about this barbeque so that’s what we’ve done.
They’ve done up a petition, it’s been sent in and 68 residents have signed it. The Lord Mayor has put the money in this year’s financial budget to put that barbeque in the park. Once that barbeque is in we’ll go back to the residents and say what else would you like to see in this area because I believe that I listen to my residents, what they want.
Thank you, Madam Chair. So yes look all I want to say is that I do support this petition for an electric barbeque to replace the existing wooden barbeque in this park for the residents of Benbek Circuit and I thank you very much.
