As briefly reported last week, at the monthly meeting of the town council, letters were read from firms protesting against the provision of a pool on account of the “crippling effect” it would have on the rates. Councillor Brown wondered why the firms had not written before the council made the decision. The Provost said that they had probably believed that the council was an intelligent group who would throw the scheme out. There was still plenty of time for a chance of policy he added. There was no question of going ahead in the meant time.

Representatives of the Roads committees of Angus Council and Kincardineshire Council are to meet next month to discuss safety measures at North Water Bridge, the scene of so many accidents.
