It is ridiculous that you feel your entitled to privacy in regards to your finances, when the rate payer is responsible for paying your salary.

Typical of KDC to hide behind protocol while your rate payers struggle to make ends meat, living paycheck to paycheck yet the KDC employees sit behind their desks getting fat off the backs of hard working folk. In the process you are destroying our own, our water, our hopes!

You would get the same reponse from any organisation in both the private and public sectors.

PS Unless the council actually goes looking on the FYI website, they won't see your response.

I didn't ask nor do I want you opinions Mr Rodgers! I see you make a habit of uselessly adding annotations on everyone's requests.
