As people may know, Mr Reasonable takes a very keen interest in how Barnet Council spends its (residents') money. With the new Council Pledgebank I thought I should try and be constructive. I have therefore submitted the following pledge and I await to see if it gets posted on the Council's website. It is a genuine pledge and something which could potentially help to save the council serious money. I just hope the Council are genuinely open in their response.
"I will pledge to give up 4 hours of my time every month to scrutinise and challenge all invoices over £10,000 to help the Council reduce unnecessary spending so long as five other people will make a similar time commitment to sit on the panel and that Barnet Council will genuinely participate in the process and listen to the advice and opinions given."
