Furthermore the old District council had only 10 councillors and only 8 of them represented the town areas. There will probably never be 29 people willing to serve on three separate councils but surely thirteen citizens could be found to keep a single Royal Burgh Council alive.
Really? What happens if they have conflicting views? How does the town get across its views to the powers that be if that is the case? And what happens if one or more of the councils simply cease to exist through the lack of effective members. That happened with the previous West council remember!
