Date posted: 26-07-2012
A SENIOR Thurrock councillor questioned the accuracy of the chief executive of Thurrock Council, Graham Farrant’s claim that 90% of council residents were satisfied with housing improvement company Morrison.
Belhus councillor, Wendy Curtis told the full council that: “I have to say that 90% of my postbag is in relation to Morrison. I can’t believe the figure that the chief executive gave is an accurate figure.”
Portfolio holder, cllr Val Morris-Cook responded. She said: “We have a long way to go with the Morrison contract and need to do more to measure satisfaction and/or dis-satisfaction rates.
“We have had very productive meetings over the last few weeks. One meeting in South Ockendon saw over 65 residents attend.
“I still cannot quite believe that the Tories, when in power and when negotiating this contract did not put an exit clause in!”
