Fallout from the snow

I got this e-mail from the CEO of Reading Borough Council following on from my e-mail about the snow and disruption. Good to hear that there will be a review.

"Dear Rob,

Whilst in the midst of the extreme weather and working to deal with the consequences, I can confirm that the Council's website is being regularly updated with information relating to the current conditions and the action the Council is taking. I am sure you will find it a helpful source of information.

We will undertake a review, in accordance with best practice and the wishes of most Councillors, of the events of the past couple of weeks. While there will undoubtedly be some things that could have been done differently, in the context of the worst and most prolonged period of extreme and cold weather for 30 years, it is doubtful that, despite our best endeavours, we can work to a brief to 'ensure that this problem doesn't happen again'.

I hope this is helpful.

Kind regards,
