COSLA comment on winter maintenance funding overspend

A COSLA Spokesperson commented: "Councils main concerns are public safety and keeping the roads clear and people moving.  

"Like any budget decision individual spend is rightly and properly a matter for local discretion based on local need and circumstance.

"What I can say generally is cuts to local government certainly don't help the situation.

"Demand for our services will always outstrip our ability to pay for them as our recent fair funding for essential services document showed."
