You'd think that since they were administering these charges that it would be responsible for this service.
Tonight a senior citizen neighbour of mine, who lives in sheltered housing, called at my house to ask for my help as his alarm box was stating he was not connected.
As his phone was not working, I phoned the council's alarm service from a public phone and to my shock and horror, it did not even know his alarm was not working and the blame was at the telephone provider's door.
This service could do with a serious investigation as cost-cutting is putting elderly senior citizens' lives at risk.
Argyle Street is a tired, sorry-looking place these days and has been for some years.
For the council's Planning Committee to refuse permission for a decent, quality coffee shop as it would be "damaging" to the city, baffles me (Monday).
No doubt the area is being earmarked for yet another pound/charity shop of which we have more than our fair share already.
While all the money seems to be spent on Buchanan Street, housing all the top shops and eateries, Argyle Street is fast becoming the poor relation (comparable only to the once great Sauchiehall Street).
It won't go unnoticed by any tourists at the total lack of decent coffee areas available in this section of Argyle Street, so my message to the planners is start thinking "outside the box" or suffer the consequences.
I would like to ask who decided to put a wee roundabout in Dumbreck Road and reduce it to one lane for a big part of it?
It now takes about 30 minutes to get to Ibrox Stadium on a match day from the slip road off the M77. This would normally take about 10 minutes.
