Plaid Cymru's Wrexham councillors are sticking to their manifesto pledges and have refused to take the pay increase for councillors.
The group of three have also had discussions with the council's IT department about using iPads to access council papers and restricted documents. The council was insistent that these papers would not be accessible without the council's own iPads rather than any other device.
After amicable discussion, the group has decided that it will make a voluntary financial contribution to the council to effectively pay for (but not own) the iPads for the extent of the five-year term. Our pledge was to refuse the free iPads and - if every councillor followed our lead - thousands of pounds could be saved by the council each year.
